WELCOME UMASS FRESHMEN 



VOL. LXVIII— NO. 1 PUBLISHED THRICE WEEKLY 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



EXPANSION 
IS A MUST 

"Be revolutionary," avoid "Ac- 
cepting things as they are," urged 
University President J. Paul 
Mather at the annual Student 
Leaders Conference held this 
week on campus. 

Speaking to 130 leaders in stu- 
dent govei-^iment, honorary soci- 
eties and extra-curricular groups 
on "The Why of What Goes On," 
Mather said the university is 
committed to public education 
and will continue to grow in spite 
of "nostalgia nippers" who want 
to preserve tradition above econ- 
omy and the benefit of the stu- 
dent. 

Stating that a great msmy stu- 
dents, as capable as those al- 
ready here, have to be rejected 
each year. Matcher pointed out the 
necessity for putting the univer- 
sity on a full 12 monlfli teaching 
and learning schedule "to make 
full use of the buildings that the 
Massachusetts taxpayers have 
pi-ovided here." 

This will not be a "Beefed-up 
summer session" but a full third 
session, he said. The plan, already 
approved toy the trustees, is a 
move that will bring fortti from 
the state of Massachusetts the 
"imagination necessai-y" in pre- 
paring for the predicted goal of 
10,000 students by 1965. 



FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 1957

department. 

The Science Foundation is also 
[)rovi<iing $16,000 for support of

Nearly 1200 freshmen, part of the university record- 
high enrollment of 4740 students, arrived on campus yester- 
day toting trunks and suitcases, bags and boxes to begin col- 
lege life with five days of orientation including registration, 
counseling sessions, dormitory pai-ties and dances. 

The newcomers to the university campus gathered as 
a class for the first time at 8:30 this morning at the Student 
Union for convocation. Separate meetings were held by the 
deans of the Colleges of Agriculture and Arts and Science, 
deans of the five schools— business administi*ation, educa- 
tion, engineering, home economics, nursing and the division 
of physical education. 

Testing began this afternoon and will continue through 
tomorrow morning. 

FULL PROGRAM AHEAD 

Freshmen have a weekend round of social events in- 
cluding a picnic, get-acquainted dances and teas ahead.

A feature of the universit" 
program to better acquaint each 
student with his college life is the 
individual advisory prn^rraiu. 
Advisory Program 

Every entering freshman is as- 
signed to a member of the fac- 
ulty who will serve as his advis- 
or during the first year of uni- 
versity life. Advisors Oiave been 
chosen hy academic deans on the 
basis of interest in young people 
and willingness to counsel on 
academic, financial, or pei'sonal 
problems.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1957 



(Sift MaBBadfiXBtttB (HuUratau 

TO THE FROSH . . . 

With this issue of the Collegian we wel- 
come to our campus the largest class in the 
history of the University of Massachusetts. 
You all must have received many welcomes 
by now, so I guess you know that we rather 
like having you here with us in the land of 
Umies. New blood, new faces, new ideas are 
always refreshing. 

A freshman is an eternally delightful 
creature. He is wide-eyed, shy, willing, 
friendly. He is both proud of and embarassed 
by his unmistakable tag, his bib and beanie. 
He is awed at the university heirarchy, and 
thinks most upperclassmen resemble gods. 
He is curious. He wants to know people, 
facts, figures, the guy down the hall, the 
name of that little blonde co-ed that just 
walked by so prettily. He wants to learn. 

If there is anything a freshman is not, 
he is not apathetic. Apathy is a dreaded 
disease that attacks people everywhere — in 
the home, in schools, in our government — 
everywhere in our daily life. This is the 
best thing about a freshman, he cares. 

Beware of the Pseudo-Sage 

He cares about whether or not he is liked, 
if the football team wins, if that little blonde 
really did notice the color of his eyes, and 
how well he did on that chem exam. Yes, 
freshmen care about their grades, and how 
much they are learning. Please don't listen 
* trv the pseudo-sage upperclass cynics who 
who tend to belittle individuality and intel- 
lectualism. Their lot is really pretty dull. 
Please don't imitate the pseudo-sages be- 
cause they don't care about anything except 
how much relaxation they can fit in between 
bothersome classes. And even relaxation 
bores them after a while. 

Too Much Stress On Extra-Curric 

It is a wonderful thing that freshmen 
possess this great interest and spirit, but 
even this can lead them into trouble. A 
freshman is usually so enthusiastic about 
everything on campus that he involves him- 
self in a great many extra-curricular activ- 
ities and doesn't discover until it is too late 
that he has attempted too much. Things 
extracurricular should not be overstressed 
(though unfortunately they are) and campus 
success should not be measured according to 
how many dance committees one has worked 
on. Original extra-curricular expression is 
highly desirable and should be encouraged on 
any college campus, but your aim should not 
be to have a long list of activities under your 
name in the yearbook four years from now. 

False Picture of UM Life 

Perhaps one of the reasons for this dan- 
gerous desire to "join" may be found in the 
introduction to the campus that you are all 
happily experiencing right now. Granted our 
orientation program for incoming freshman 
may be valuable in many ways, but it hardly 
tells a freshman what college is really all 
about. To too many it says, "Kids, if you 
think high school was fun, wait 'til you get a 
Irad of this place!" It is wonderful to join 
jn the singing, the dancing, and the rallying, 
but it is unfortunate that too many freshmen 
begin to think that the froth comes first, 
the classes, afterward. 

The Real University 

Though it is fun to sing and wave ban- 
ners, most of you will probably be anxious 
for classes to begin in a few days. Then you 
can start to think and learn and begin to ful- 
fill something of what you came here for in 
the first place. You can find a great deal 
here at the university if you care and if you 
look. 




Ahother typical scene on campus yesterday afternoon. Here 
we have the jierpetual i>rohlem of, u'hat are we going to do with 
all this st.uff once we've got it all into the room! Engaged in 
trying to figure out this happy puzzle on Arnold's second floor 
are, left to right, Mrs. Fred Whittier of Framingham, Diane 
Roberts from Natick High, Sharon Whittier from Framingham 
High, and Mr. Fred Whittier, also of Framingham. 



From the President... 

On behalf of the whole university family I want to extend 
a warm welcome to the class of 1961 to the campus of your state 
university. One of the old established traditions at the university 
is that we use a standard greeting on the campus— the short "Hi!" 
Don't be surprised, then, if anyone from the President through 
the entire faculty, staff and student body addresses you in this 
friendly and cordial manner. We mean it when we say we are 
glad to welcome you to higher educational opportunities and 
all of us sincerely hope that you make the best of your abilities 
here. Work hard, play hard, and remember that you are learning 
to make a life as well as a living.

A College Newspaper 

We are a college newspaper, no better 
and no worse than most. We are not bad, but 
we must become much better. This is where 
all, of you come in. 

Newspapers always need more people on 
their staffs, people who can write and who 
can think and who have new ideas. Training, 
well, this is not quite so important. Much 
more important to begin work on a news- 
paper is possessing the right temperment. 
The v.'ork you Vv'ill do is exciting, and it is 
nerve wracking. Reporters are sent to many 
interesting corners of the campus that ordi- 
narily they wouldn't see. They meet and in- 
terview fascinating people-faculty, adminis- 
tration, other university employees, and stu- 
dents. Then when they have gathered all the 
facts that they think they have to know, they 
scurry back to an office that is always re- 
sounding with the clacking of typewriters, 
the laughter, and the many other assorted 
noises that newspaper people make, to write 
their story. And finally after many addition- 
al telephone calls, much biting of nails, and 
much glancing at the clock so that the storj^ 
will be completed by the printer's deadline, 
their mission is over. The rewards are few, 
the headaches are many — but the work is 
wonderfully stimulating and always amus- 
ing. 

The Collegian needs reporters, and fea- 
ture writers, and editorialists, and sports 
writers. We need them badly. If any of you 
can help us out, please come to our ofl^ce and 
let us know. We don't know who you are. 
If you are interested in newspaper work 
watch the pages of the Collegian for the date 
when our fall training classes begin. Join the 
Fourth Estate- we need you !

THE MASSACHUgETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 1957 



Welcome to All You Freshmen . . . 



Frosh Spirit To Power 
Chomp Redmen Teoms 



* * From the Outside World * 

(Reprint from the Wall Street Journal of August 30, 1957) 



Welcome to the LTniversity of 
Massachusetts' world of sports. 

In the coming months you will 
be excited and thrilled by the 
Redmen teams as they don their 
respective uniforms to do battle 
and win glory for our growing 
University. 

FROSH SPIRIT 

The most reassuring factor 
that any team can have is a loyal 
core of fans to cheer it on. You 
are new to campus life, to col- 
lege spirit, but you are the life 
and the energy on which our 
teams will rely. 

Sports at college will play an 
important role in your four years 
here. Always a topic of conver- 
sation, your avid interest will do 
wonders for the morale of every 
University team, as well as your 
own confidence in our fine insti- 
tution. 

You have heard many times 
that you will derive from life only 



by JOEL WOLFSON 

Collegian Sports Editor 

as much as you put into it. This 
is one of your first lessons to 
learn if you haven't discovered it 
as yet. It applies to studies as 
well as all else. In our case we 
shall apply it to sports. 

As Jim Britt, the old Boston 
Braves sportscaster once put it, 
"If you can't take part in a sport 
be one anyway." This was not a 
play of words. It is rather easy 
to bear the good graces of the 
winner but it is the mark of a 
matured individual who can take 
a loss and bear no malice or ill- 
feeling. 

FROSH PARTICIPATION 

You freshmen are the atomic 
turbine engines which will power 
our University submarine. It is 
your cooperation with the Revel- 
ers, Maroon Key, and Scrolls that 
win start off your quest for a 
happy college life on the right 
foot. 

What we want is spirit, fight. 



and determination. You have what 
we are looking for. 

All of you freshmen receive 
tickets allowing you to be an 
eye-witness to the sports happen- 
ings on our spacious and scenic 
campus. You have these tickets 
to use and enjoy, don't let them 
sit in your desk or on your bu- 
reau. Get out for the game. Get 
out for the pre-game rally and 
bonfire. You can do a great deal 
for your school as well as for 
yourself. 

There is a great deal more to 
college than you realize. As each 
day passes you will learn more 
and more about life and the peo- 
ple around you. It is the same 
on the sports field as it is in the 
chem lab or your lecture class. 
Your constant attention is a 
must; your alertness is a necess- 
ity; and the attainment of your 
goal is a credit to your ability. 



The vaccine for Asiatic — or, as 
the headline writers prefer to call 
it, Asian — flu is reported to be in 
rather short supply right now, 
though by the turn of the year 
the United States Public Health 
Service says that production will 
be great enough to provide one 
shot for about half the people of 
the country. 

Public Health officials say that 
the one cubic centimeter shot pro- 
vides about 70 per cent immun- 
ity. They also think it better to 
keep the dosage at present levels 
and thus have more vaccine for 
more people than to increase the 
dosage and have less shots to go 
around. 

The armed services, however, 
have doubled their requests for 
vaccine. The plan is to give every 
soldier, sailor, marine and air- 
man two shots instead of one. By 
our slide rule, this will provide 



each serviceman with approxi- 
mately 140 per cent immunity. 

Now we do not wish to be 
thought unpatriotic about this 
situation — we recognize as well 
as anyone that young men in uni- 
form deserve the very greatest 
possible protection at all times. 
In fact, we feel so strongly about 
the matter that we will gladly 
give up our shot to the first ser- 
viceman who comes along, reg- 
ular or reserve. 

But we do have two observa- 
tions to make. One is that nobody 
ought to be surprised that the 
armed services want twice as 
much as anyone else of anything. 

The other obser\'ation is that 
everybody concerned — including 
the soldiers, sailors, marines and 
airmen ought to give tlianks 
that servicemen do not have three 
arms. 



ATTENTION FROSH!!

NATS SIGN LUMENTI 

The biggest news on the Uni- 
versity campus is the $35,000 
bonus given to Ralph "Lefty" 
Lumenti, ace moundsman of coach 
Earl Lorden's baseball club. The 
Washington Nationals of the 
American League gave "Lefty" 
the biggest bonus they have ever 
given in the history of their club. 
Ralph's father, Angelo, says that 
Ralph will fly here to register on 
September 10th. Ralph is in the 
Washington bull-pen right now, 
waiting to see action against 
Baltimore. 

The next edition will feature 
an article on "Lefty" as well as 
views on college by a number of 
the Boston Red Sox whom we 
interviewed over the summer.

VICTORY KINGS 

Give or take a few, there are 
roughly 160 pitchers currently 
working in the major leagues, but 
only 21 of them can boast of ever 
having won 20 games in a single 
season. The pace-setters, as indi- 
cated in a breakdown of 20-game 
and near-20-game winners in 
SPORT Magazine, are Cleveland's 
Bob Lemon and Milwaukee's War- 
ren Spahn, both of whom have 
reached the magic figures seven 
times. Only five other present day 
hurlers have been able to win 20 
or more games in at least two 
seasons: Robin Roberts, with six. 
Early Wynn (four), Don New- 
combe (three), Johnny Antonelli 
(two) and Mike Garcia (two). 
SPORT, with a chart covering the 
full story of 20-game and near-20- 
game winners, is at newsstands 
now.

University Singers Chorus 
Reestablished On Campus 



by MARCIA 'EITH 

One hundred mixed voices will 
make up the newly reorganized 
University Singers on campus. 

This dhorus is open to all 
classes and plans to pi^esent a 
Christmas program during the 
second week in December in con- 
Junction with the Opera Work- 
shop. 

Auditions are to be held at Me- 
morial Hall for those interested 
during the second week of school 
on September 18rti from 3 p.m. 
to 5 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. to 
8:30 p.m. and on the following 
day from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Prof. 
Doric Alviani, advisor to the re- 
vived group, stated that these 
auditions are not to test singing 
ability, but rather to place voices 
into their proper st>ctions: sopra- 
no, alto, tenor and bass. 

Rehearsals. Wednesdays 

The rehearsals, held on We<lne8- 
days from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 
on alternate Wednewlays fixjm 
6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., will also take 
place at Memorial Hall. Composi- 
tions by Ba<^, Handel, and vari- 
ous other artists will be inducted 
at these rehearsals. 

This group was for many years 



one of the major musical organi- 
zations on campiis before it was 
disbanded and it is hoped that it 
will again achieve this status.

fans from the country over think 
the Dodgers should .stay in Brook- 
lyn. The vote was 4 '4 to 1. A ty- 
pical comment: "Sure, the people 
on the We.st Coast deserve a big 
league team. But let some other 
team come West. The Bums be- 
long in Brooklyn, because Brook- 
lyn supports them well." 
The New York Giants will make 
their new home in San Francisco 
next spring. If Dodger President 
Walter O'Malley doesn't get the 
new ball-park that he wants he'll 
be making news soon regarding 
the bums move to Los Angeles.

FOUNDED IN 19.55 

The group, founded by music director Doric Alviani 
in 1955, has a two-fold purpose. One is to promote student, 
faculty, and community interest 



in opera. And, the other is to pro- 
vide actual working experience on 
such productions for interested

Campus Police To President Keeney of Brown 

Register All Cars 



All student-owned automobiles 
must be registered with the 
campus police by Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 17. 

Juniors ;!n(l S(nioi> ni-iy re- 
gfister their cars Monday from 8 
to 12 and from 12:30 to 5 in the 
new Student Union parking lot. 
Tuesday, all other students, 
Sophs, Freshmen and Grad stu- 
dents, must register their auto- 
mobiles. Any car jjarked on cam- 
pus after Tuesday without a stu- 
dent or staff sticker will be 
ticketed, visitors excepted. In 
<;i~.' of inclement weather the re- 
gistering of cars will take place 
as scheduled, only the location 
will be moved to the Receiving 
room in the rear of Draper Hall, 
Chief Blasko stated. 



Seven Days 
To Change 

There are only seven class 
days left in which students may 
add new courses to their sched- 
ule, the Registrar's office stated 
today. 

Changes to students' programs 
are accomplished by going to this 
office and obtaining course change 
cards. The secretary will t^hen ex- 
plain the rest of the procedure. 
Any course added without the 
approval of the advisor of the 
student and of the Registrar on 
a Program Change Card will not 
receive credit. 

Starkweather, assistant regis- 
trar, said thsit it should be made 
clear that courses may be 
dropped anytime during the se- 
mester without failing if the stu- 
dent is passing at the time of 
withdrawal. Any course that is 
to he dropped must also have the 
dropped any time during the se- 
er and of Hhe Registrar or a Pro- 
gram Change Card or it will be 
recorded as failed. 



The new stickers will be of dif- 
ferent design so as to cancel all 
sticker.=! that were issued last 
year. All car owners who are re- 
sidents of dorms will be issued 
Xo Drivinsr stickers. These cars 
will not i)e allowed to move at 
all during school hours. The Fra- 
ternities will be allowed to park 
in the cinder block lot. Commu- 
ters may park in North, South 
and Kast Lots only. 

The new Student Union Lot is 
reserved for Staff parking only 
during the working day, 8 to 5. 
During the evening the students 
are requested to park in this area 
when in the Union. Xo parking 
is allowed on either side of Ellis 
Drive (in front of the Student 
Union) at any time. This applies 
to faculty and students equally. 
Any violations of this rule will be 
tickete<l, the campus police said. 
Other parking miles around the 
Union include: absolutely no 
parking in the roadway going 
down to the Barber shop. The cir- 
cular drive in front of the Union 
is reserved for visitors only and 
again all cars are requested not 
to park in this area. 

Chief Blasko also reminds 
dorm residents that the fire laws 
prohibit parallel parking in the 
roadways nearest any dorm. 
Particularly no parking can be 
allowed on the East side of the 
road in front of Mills and Brooks 
because of the fire danger and be- 
cause the building contractors 
need the driving room. 

Blasko advises that if all the 
drivers on campus do their be.st 
to follow the rules and the signs 
there should be a minimum of 
confusion and trouble.

probably unique in university and 
college records in this area. 

Miss Cook joined the Univer-

Succeeding presidents included

Urges Student 
Responsibility 

"We must turn the present 
crisis in education into the 
great opportunity that it can be 
to examine our present practices, 
to expand and improve, and to 
throw out all that does not be- 
long there. 

"If we do not take this opport- 
unity to demand a great many 
things that we do not now have, 
the next decade will be one of 
great crisis, of opportunity lost 
and of national tragedy." 

This was the advice of Dr. 
Bamaby Keeney, president of 
Brown University, who gave the 
main address at the Opening 
Convocation at the Cage yester- 
day morning. 

Situation Deplorable 

Keeney elaborated on the great 
numbers of potential college 
material that have already been 
born, saying potential faculty 
and buildings are entirely inad- 
equate, and that the prevailing an- 
swer to the problem has become 
"let George do it." 

We must guard, he said, 
against the most logical result of 
this condition. That of letting our 
institutions and their curricula 
grow haphazardly. The Har- 
vaiiJ scholar went on to sa>' that 
we must not solve our problem by 
watering down the present struc- 
ture or we will let down all of 
history. 

Quality With Growth 
We must expand and at the 
same time be conscious of the 
quality of what we are develop- 
ing. He mentioned that at present 
there is less t?han sixty-one 
hundredths of one percent of the 
national expenditure spent on 
higher education. 

In the process of this revamp- 
ing, he advised more stringent 
entrance requirements and the 
passing up of the below average 
student w'ho is taking up present 
room while having only a half- 
formed desire for a higher educa- 
tion. Dr. Keeney showed con- 
fidence in even the slightly above 
average student who is develop- 
ing himself. 

He warned against the grow- 
ing practice of proli'- ration of 
curricula. He mentioned that 
teaching has become dangeix>ualy 
shabby and that it is coming, in 
some cases, diivetly out of books. 
The students are thus learning 
directly from l>ooks and they are 
forgetting the art of true think- 
ing for themselves. These are the 
causi s why almost half of each 
yar's entering class fails to re- 
ceive degrees.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEITEMBEK 13, 1957 



gif. Masaarl?«s.llB (Soilrflian ^.juj^^j, from abroad; 



NEW ATTITUDE... 

The university, we would all concede, is 
primarily an academic institution. Cultiva- 
tion of the mind is the highest goal which we 
can achieve here, and we use the term mind 
to express a totality of intellectual, cultural 
and social capacities. 

The academic community which is the 
university, is inspired, serviced and made 
richer by the contributions of various groups 
which we generally term extra-curricular 
activities. We all concede that such activ^- 
ities are essential in a well-balanced com- 
munity for learning. Each organization at 
once is designed to provide benefit (1) for 
the entire community with its end-product, 
be it newspaper, precision marching, or 
drama, and (2) for the individuals who par- 
ticipate in the joint organized effort. 

A third point of concession in all quar- 
ters is the admission that our activities are 
far from functioning at top level. Many 
are not providing the service that the cam- 
pus would like, and that their leaders visu- 
alize. Others do not provide their members 
the experience that could be gained from sin- 
cere participation. Each organization best 
knows its own shortcomings; some are pe- 
culiar to the organization and some are the 
result of campus-vvide attitudes and systems. 

One problem which affects almost every 
organization is the overburdened executive. 
Persons who bear the largest responsibilities 
in one major organization ai'e often similarly 
burdened in other areas. This is obviously 
harmful to the individual, but it is also a 
great hindrance to the various groups to 
which he gives part of his time. He can not 
do as effective and constructive work as lead- 
er in several gi'oups as he couM if he concen- 
trated largely on one major organization 
in a position of leadership. 

One explanation for this weakness in our 
extra-curricular system causing harmful du- 
plication of leadership exists in a prevalent 
attiude on campus. Perhaps this attitude, 
if recognized as harmful, could be changed 
in time so that extra-curricular expression 
can grow in quality as the campus popula- 
tion grows. 

The attitude with which we are concerned 
is the pressure which draws a small nucleus 
of students in over their heads in campus 
activity. Our leadership system seems to 
perpetuate the same "names" as leaders in 
several major areas. We, as a community, 
bestow our greatest honors on those who 
carry the most diverse responsibilities — 
simultaneously. Campus values condone and 
urge individual acceptance of several res- 
ponsible positions. 

We are not referring to the glory-seekers 
who attach themselves loosely to a string 
of organizations — we are concerned with the 
currently encouraged practice of attempting 
top jobs in two, three, or four major areas. 
The problem is not because these people are 
too weak to refuse positions offered them; 
it is because they are part of an attitude 
which encourages multi-responsibility as 
right, desirable, and rewarding. 

We think that leadership in major areas 
by those holding only membership status in 
other major areas would best benefit the in- 
dividual, the activity and the campus com- 
munity. Perhaps this is a good thing to con- 
sider as we Ix'^in a new year.

Robert Ratay, civil engineering '61 has by this 
date attended several meetings at UMass. On Octo- 
ber 22, 1956, only eleven months ago he attended 
a meeting of students at the University of Buda- 
pest. They had met to demand restriction of Marx- 
ist and other communist courses from the Univer- 
sity. They wanted freedom of the press and radio. 
That same evening some of his fellows were shot 
by the AVO (Hungarian secret police.) 

Most of us are aware of the ensuing events of 
the Hungarian revolution. How many of us know 
that in our student body there is a former member 
of the Student Army, who in company with his fi- 
ance, Gabriella Szekely, fled from Budapest, was 
captured by the Russians, and after four months 
of hoping and waiting, landed in the United States. 

While spending a few days at Camp Kilmer he 
was amazed by the soft life of the American G.I. 
He found New York to be not all skyscrapers as he 
had imagined; the number of automobiles was over- 
whelming. After New York he attended language 
classes at the University of Miami and worked in 
Chicago for the summer. American girls, "Are 
nicer than Hungarian girls — except one." The one 
nicer Hungarian girl is on scholarship at San Diego 
State College and Robert expects to be with her 
during vacation. He explained that academic stan- 
dards in Hungary are much higher than those in 
America; where he has twenty class hours here, ho 
had thirty-eight to forty at the University of Buda- 
pest. 

One remark brought me back to the seriousness 
of the situation. Robert asked if the Collec/ian, as 
other American newspapers, would be sent to Hun- 
gary. His name must be withheld if this was the 
case, for he has a mother and brother still in Hun- 
gary. My next query brought a moment's hesitation. 
"Was it all worth it? I don't know, 60,000 Hun- 
garians were killed. Many others are still suppressed. 
Who can say." 30,000, mostly professional people 
and students, esca{)ed to America. Of these, 5,000 
will receive citizenship in five years. For Boh, as he 
wishes to be called, citizenship is uncertain. He 
wants to remain in this country and send for his 
mother and brother. 

Bob asked me to express his thanks to the uni- 
versity and to the Inter- Fraternity Council, Well, 
Robert Ratay, you are due a few thanks. From 
Democracy, from America, from your fellow stu- 
dents, thanks.

END OF AN ERA— (SIGH) 

IN-rhaps tin newcomers to campus will not recoKni/.i this latlur dit'iulied but 
crumbling edifice. But certainly all the other nostalgic Umies will. It is the old North 
ColleKe. the last to remain of the structures erected by the Norsemen when they \isii«Ml 
these shores many years ai't». Howe\er. the Norsemen were not aci|uainte<l willi the 
maHtcr plan of the university, and did not rrali/e that some time later a hii;. ni4»dern, 
streamlined classroom building named Machmer Hall would be hnilf iie\t lo th«ir ivy- 
covered pride making it (N.C.) look uncomfortably out of place. W «l|, thes, thiims 
finally came to pass last year, and Machmer succeeded in making old North OilleKe 
feel so uncomfortable that the old building simply crumbled to the ground (with a 
little coa\in>.r froni the university wrecking crew). 

When this pictine was taken the old ('-Store, barely visible on th<- tirsi H„oi. was 
still intact. Perhaps many of you remember the C-sfore. This was that wonderful 
little place where students and faculty used to air tin- problems of the world and the 
campUB over a cup of cofTee wnhont having to compete with current rtick 'n roll blatting 
from a juke box. Ah yes — (High). 



varied interests of the students 
involved. 

WOVA was formed late in the 
last stliodl year and is still in its 
infancy. Though the group is 
small in number right now it is 
pi-esently, under the direction of 
its faculty advisors, Mr. Leon 
Barron .of the English depart- 
ment and Mr. Frederick Ellert of 
the German department, in the 
pnxress of drawing up a consti- 
tution. This constitution if it is 
ratified by the Senate will enable 
WOVA to become a member of 
RSO. 

Thoutjh WOVA has imt yet had 
its fir-st birthday it has already 
participat-.nl in (juite a fev,- inter- 
esting programs. 

Last year it sponsored a can- 
dlelight talk in Crabtree lounge 
by Mr. Louis Greenbaum of the 
history department on the Ger- 
man composer Wagner, and co- 
sponsored the history department 
when ISIr. Paul Gagnon, now 
working on his doctorate at Har- 
vard, s]>oke on communism also 
at Crabtree. 

WOVA also participated in the 
program offered by the Leeds 
Hospital for mentally ill veterans 
last spring. This training pro- 
gram, which i.s held in both the 
spring and fall of each year, is 
sponsored by the Inter-Faith 
Council at the university to edu- 
cate intei-ested people, particu- 
larly students, in the tieatment 
of the mentally ill. Thirty-five

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1957 



University-General Electric 
Starts Training Program 



The first class of 30 engineer- 
ing apprentices in the University- 
General Electric cooperative pro- 
gram have enrolled as freshmen 
at the univereity. 

During the next four years, 
they will be employed in the 
Pittsfield branch of General Elec- 
tric and study three courses after 
a normal eight-hour work day. 

At the end of the four-year 
program, they will be classified 
as engineering technicians. They 
will be encouraged to continue an 
additional two years of study at 
the university for a full engi- 
neering degree. 

General Electric pays tuition 
costs, through a trust fund ad- 
ministered by university trustees. 

The 30 high school graduates 
were selected from 500 high 
school seniors who underwent 
preliminary testing. They meet 
college entrance requirements, 
and additional scientific back- 
ground required by GE. 

The joint program, evolved 
after a year's planning Vjetween 



GE and university administra- 
tion and the School of Engineer- 
ing, provides a practical method 
for engineering students to re- 
ceive valuable on-the-job experi- 
ence as well as college-level in- 
struction. 

Classes are held in Pittsfield 
High School three nights a week, 
with an additional laboratory 
session. Instruction is provided 
by university personnel as wefl 
as teachers from Pittsfield area 
schools and colleges. The students 
will receive instruction in chemi- 
stry, mathematics and English. 
The examinations are parallel to 
those given on the university 
campus to engineering students. 

The GE apprentice engineers, 
after experience in all phases of 
the transformer production ope- 
ration at Pittsfield, will be offered 
well-paid positions within the 
plant. 

After six years, they will be in 
a strong competitive position 
with graduate engineers with the 
added practical experience. 



Geology Dept. Head Smith 
Attends Barcelona Gathering 



H. T. U. Smith, head of the 
geology department at the univer- 
sity attended an international 
gathering of geologists in Bar- 
celona in August. 

Smith is representing several 
scientific societies for the Fifth 
Internationa! Congress of the In- 
ternational Quaternary Associa- 
tion. Delegates will consider 
world-wide programs of the ice 
age and pleistocene geology. 

From Aug. 21 to Sept. 1, Smith 
participated in a technical excur- 
sion in the Pyrenees. INQUA 



sessions opened in Madrid and 
continued in Barcelona. Smith 
submitted a paper, "Sand dunes 
in Peru," based «>n research in 
that country. 

.550 Geologists Attend 

About 500 geologists represent- 
ing major universities and mu- 
seums around the world attended 
the congress. 

Smith represented the Geologi- 
cal Society of America, American 
Society of Photogrammetry and 
the Association of Ameiiran Ge- 
ographers.

Registration 
Dance Opens 
School Year 

The upperclassr.ien again had 
their sights set for bibs and 
b<-anit's anil Fi-eslimen last Tues- 
day night at the Kegi.stration 
Dance. 

The girls, all warned by the 
envious upjierclasswomen, i)roudly 
flaunted their trophies before 
both admiring Ficlimen and 
football players. 

This yearly event attracted 
over 1500 .students from all 
cla.sses and cleared $650. One 
half of this money will go to the 
Dean's F^mergency Fund, the 
other half will go to the Faculty 
Women for a project to be de- 
cided and announced later on and 
four hntinr societies. 

The whole campus enjoyed 
dancing to the music of Bob 
Clark's Orchestra. Between 
dances all migrated to the Hatch 
to catch up with the gossip and 
see old friends. 

Mortar Board and Adelphia 
were responsible for this well- 
planned evening, which was well 
summed up by the Faculty Wom- 
en who "\v<"f,> delighted with the 
whole evening." I'm .sure all the 
old l^mies, as well as our new 
Freshmen thoroughly agree with 
this quote.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 13. 1937 



Rush Is On To Meet AlC 



• • • 



O'Rourke Rebuilding With Sophomores; 
Small, Rugged Squad Greets Charlie 



Rmd In tHjS Corncr .. . 



Thirty-three gridiron camli- 
dates reported to Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke at the University of 
Massachusetts last August 28 as 
the Redmen got the jump on the 
other college football snuads in 
New England in pre-season train- 
ing. Eleven lettermen, only one of 
whom was a starter last season 
and three of whom haven't played 
ball for two to five years, will 
form the nucleus of the small in- 
experienced ball club which will 
tackle the same tough schedule as 
a year ago during which the Red- 
men could win only two ball 
games plus a tie in eight starts. 
It was the smallest squad that 
Coach O'Rourke has had on oiitn- 
ing day in six years. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke is in- 
augurating his sixth consecutive 
season as head football coach as 
is his chief assistant, Chet Glad- 
chiik. Thcs^' veteran mentors will 
be assisted by Noel Keebe: ^cker 
as backfield coach and Dave In- 
gram as end coach. Both of these 
new coaches played for O'Kourke 
at the University of Massachu- 
setts. 

Prospects were n vor darker 
than they wefe as the coaches 
greeted the thirty-three candi- 
dates. Fourteen of last yeaf-'s sen- 
iors, including the top seven backs 
were graduated in .June. End 
John O'Keefe is the only return- 
ing letterman who was a regular 
in 1956. But the lettermen were 
bolstered by the appearance of 
three former Redmen. Gerry 
Walls, a triple-threat speedster 
back, played three years ago 
while guard Lou Varrichione was 
a .starter two seasons ago. Veter- 
an Hank Wilson who has been in 
the service was a letterman as a 
sophomore In 1952 and will bol- 
ster the tackle squad. 

Sophomores will hold the key 
to any success that the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts may have 
on the gridiron this fall. Hn'f <<f 

the candidates who rfportcd at 
this initial pre-season ses.siun ate 
sophomores and sadly lack game 
experience. But Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke is eounting he;ivily on 
many of these tii-.st year men who 
could \"iy ii!ol)al)ly win .-^tartin^ 
position.- i)ifi>!r till' Sfason's 
opener with American Interna- 



tional College on Satui-day, 
September 2l8t. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke has 
two passing experts with game 
experience in Ronnie Blume and 
Billy Maxwell and he has plenty 
of speed in the other backfield 
spots — but v.ithout experience. 
Army veterai, Gerry Walls and 
Bob DeValle are both trackmen 
and good break-away runners. 
Converted guard Buzz Richardson 
moves swiftly at fullback for a 
man with his size and power. 
Three of the sophomore backs, 
Armand .Sabourin, John Murphy 
and Tom Brown are all speed 
merchants while utility back Doc 
Enos is speedy at any one of 
three backfield positions. 

Up front the Redmen have 
more size than in the past few 
years, but are sadly lacking in ex- 
perience. Veteran starter Jolin 
O'Keefe and big Bob Feniani 
have good txpcrience at en<l while 
Vin MacDonald is still the best 
deft'iisive winjrnuin on the squad. 
."^opiioni;>!es w \\ he counted on a( 
tackle with Bob Amirault and 
Dick Riley looking the mo.st im- 
pressive in the initial workouts. 
Guard Phil Berardi ha.s shifted to 
tackle to plug the gap left by 
moving John Montosi to center. 

Two returning veterans Lou 
Varrichione and Hack Wilson 
have helped a desperate guard 
situation whore junior Bill Good- 
win was the only one with experi- 
ence — and he was injured most 
of last year. In order to ^nve 
depth at center where John Tero 
was the lone returnee Coach Glad 
chuk shifted big tackle John Mon- 
tosi into the center spot. 

Coach O'Rourke had scheduled 
double sessions until the opening 
of school. Classes at the Univer- 
sity are started the earliest in 
history and con.sequently football 
practice has had to suffer. But the 
Redmen coaching staff are mak- 
int; the most of th*' tini"- allot'-d 
fo!' football and had contact uork 
with full football gear before the 
end of last week. 

The Redmen face the identical 
eight opponents of a year ago. 
The schedule includes three home 
names with the opening contest 
against A.l.C. on Saturday. Sep- 
tember 21st at Alumni Field.

Blunie, of Lexington, is every 1> 
as dangerous throwing the bali 

There is plenty of speed in tbf 
other backfield positions but 
again experience is the key. Re 
turning Army veteran (Jer>.v 
Walls of Rockland is a sprinter 
who averaged five yards per 
carry for the Redmen before en 
tering the service. Bob DeValle of 
Natick is also a dash man and i< 
deadly as a break-away runner. 
Buzz Richardson, of Mansfield, a 
converted guard, moves swiftly 
at fullback for a man with hi> 
size and power. 

Sophomores Armand Sabourin 
of Northbridge, John Murphy «if 
Winchester, and Tom Brown of 
Dorchester are all speed mer- 
chants. Doc Enos of Gloucester is 
a fast utility back who can play 
t '•:*'.■ bTckfield pf»sitions with 
ailh'iri' y. Other sophomoi'es ■{'■>ni 
t^amtibell of Medford. and Roger 
Kindred of Newton and Somer- 
ville's Junior Al Bedrosian will 
all see plenty of action as th' 
power backs for the R''<i'i < • 
along with Richardson. 

Up front the Redmen have 
plenty of size but lack experience. 
Veteran end John O'Keefe and 
Sophomore tackle Dick Riley of 
Lowell are standouts who may 
have to be 60 niinute l)all players. 
Line Coach Chet GlaHchuck has 
to fasion another strong unit 
from th" law material available. 

On the flanks the Redmen are 
sfill strong in spitj. of the loss 
of Dave Ingram and Ken Mac- 
Rae. O'Keefe is a solid two way 
operatoi- with Bob Ferriani of 
Huston sho'.'.-.'d sitrns of hecomitu''

Lumenti Accepts $35,000 Bonus, 
Ace Hurler To Stay At UMass 



The Washington Nationals of 
the American League handed out 
the biggest bonus in the history 
of their club, when they signed 
up Ralph "Lefty" Lumenti for a 
bonus reported at §35,000.

His most outstanding feat was a 
no-hitter again.st Rhc. 1,. Island 
here on Alumni Peloid last April 
l.'ith. 

Struck Out IS 

It was the first no-hitter in 
the hi3to:-y of the University of 
]\Ias3achu3ott:-i and Lumenti's 18 
strikeouts set a new Yankee Con- 
ference record. Ralph walked only 
two men while facing 28 in the 
nine innings. At one time Lu- 
menti struck out five in a row 
and ran up a strinir of seven out 
of eight. He fanned the side in 
the fourth and eighth inninRs, 
and Rot two men on strikes in the 
first, third., fifth, sixth and ninth. 
A crowd of 1500 saw Lumenti 



RALPH "Lefty" LUMENTI 



"Lefty" registered here this 
past Tuesday and said that he is 
very .serious about continuing his 
education. Ralph studied and 
worked out during the week. He 
then flew down to Washington 
f"!- their weekend series with 
Kansas City, to be in the bullpen 
in case he's needed. 

Some of the most interestinsr 
sidelights came from Lefty's dad 
in Milford. » 

"Thrilled To Pieces" 

"I was just thrilled ;o pieces 
when this big break hapi)ened for 
Rali)h. He's always worked so 
hard and so long for a break like 
this," his father said. "Cookie La- 
vagetto, the Washington Mana- 
ger told me that Ralph will be 
used each weekend if necessary." 

Lavagetto, the one-time Brook- 
lyn Dodger outfielder, has a great 
deal of confidence in Lefty and it 
looks like big things are in .store 
for the fans at Griffith Stadium. 

RED SOX MISSED THE BOAT 
As reported in some of the Bos- 
ton newspapers, the Red So.\ had 
been swindled out of signing; 
Ralph but I learned since that 
Boston was not interested in pay- 
ing Ralph a bonus. 

This information came from 
Ralph's father who stated that 
Neil Mahoney of the Bosox front 
ofl^ce said the Sox were "not in- 
terested in payinjr a bonus to

"If there is one thing I'm sure

"I'd heartily say that your ca- 
reer starts with your college de- 
cree and that's the only thing 
I've ever really missed in life," 
he answered.

come without a college degree. 
Your career will come after col- 
lege in the sports or business 
world. Lord willing, all of my 
four children will go to college. 
Education comes first and sports 
or anything el.se second," he con- 
cluded. 



Bright Season Anticijjated 
For Varsity Soccer Club 



More than 30 candidates led by 
co-captains Joe Morrone and Dick 
Golas reported to coach Larry 
Briggs last week. At this mo- 
ment the starting lineup is almost 
anybody's guess and almost every 
posit i(ni is wide open. 

There are only eight returning 
lettermen on this year's squad. 
They are: Fullback Joe Morrone, 
Halfbacks Web Cutting and Ben 
Doherty, Wing Paul Mailman In- 
side Lineman Dick Golas, Bernie 
Goclowski and Bobby Lindcpust; 
and Center Forward Bill Burke. 
A very impressive 1956 frosh 
team will complement this year's 
club. 

POSITIONS AND PEOPLE 

The vacant goal spot is a 
scramble between two sopho- 
mores, Dick Williams of North- 
field and Dick Schofield of Spring- 
field. Fullback Joe Morrone is a 
sure bet to have nailed down his 
spot for the coming season. Joe 
has made a deep impression on 
Coach Briggs, due to his rugged 
running and sparkling offensive 
as well as defensive tactics. Other 
potential fullbacks are Lou Hay- 
ward, a senior, and sophomores 
Jerry Steinberg of Springfield, 
George Lust of Holyoke, and 
Charlie Repetta of Northfield. 

The leading halfbacks are sen- 
ior Web Cutting and junior Jim 
Rosenberg from Springfield. Oth- 
er candidates are Phil Hawkins, 
a senior from Fitchburg, juniors 
Art Caron of Springfield. Ben 
Doherty from Billerica, and Larry 
Treadwell. Competition is really 
keen for the position of Wingman. 
Senior Bill McCarthy from 
Springfield, juniors Fred Walker 
from Concord, Bill Collette of 
Watertown, Paul Mailman of 
Palmer, and sophomore John 
Poignand head the list of entries. 
The three candidates for Inside 



Lineman are seniors Dick Golas 
from Easthampton, Gus Sund- 
quist of Worcester and Bod Lind- 
quist who hails from the metrop- 
olis of Belchertown. Joe Field and 
Bernie Goclowski are two juniors 
out for a starting berth at Inside. 
The Center Forwards are Bel- 
mont's Bill Burke and Nick Bazos 
from Springfield. Other fellows 
out for the team include Charlie 
Leverone, Fred lossue. Grant 
Bowman, Bill Harris, Skip Bur- 
ton, Dave Brenneke and Hugo L. 
Summerstopper, Jr. 

"If the boys keep up the spirit 
they will go a long way this sea- 
son," said Coach Briggs. He also 
said that this team looks like 
one of the fastest squads he has 
ever coached. Two of the biggest 
problems are finding a high scor- 
er like Clarence Simpson who was 
graduated in 56 'and plugging 
up the goalie position. 

"There is no telling how far 
the team will go if we get a fast 
running and high scoring combin- 
ation." the coach stated. 
PLENTY OF COMPETITION 
Williams, Amherst, Trinity, 
who battled us last season are 
on the schedule once again. 
Springfield College replaced 
Bridgeport to become the only 
major change. 

STILL TIME 
Coach Briggs went on to say 
that it isn't too late for anyone 
interested in the team to try out 
for it. He stressed the fact that 
experience was not needed. To 
emphasize this point, of the first 
125 varsity lettermen, 75 had nev- 
er played before. 

The opening game will be 
played here on Sept. 28 against 
Coast Guard Academy. The soc- 
cer team is sorely in need of a 
manager; see Coach Briggs in his 
office in the Cage if you are in- 
terested.

opens, Dr. Stein will visit labora- 
tories in England and France. 

Another professor, Dr. H. T. U. 
Smith, head of the Geology De- 
partment, is currently attending 
a conference of geologists in Bai*- 
celona, Spain. He is representing 
the University and several scien- 
tific societies for the Fifth Inter- 
national Congress of the Inter- 
national Quaternary Association. 
Many Conferences Held 
It is estimated that about 800 
people were attending Summer 
Sessions workshops and insti- 
tutes. In addition, several hun- 
dred more attended conferences 
not directly sponsored by the 
University. A part of the Sum- 
mer Session was the series, "Days 
for Pan-American Understand- 
ing". Leaders from four Central 
and South American Nations 
wei-e on campus four days. 

Of the four, the appearance of 
Jose Luis Cruz-Salazar created 
the most interest. Cruz-Salazar, 
ambassador of Guatemala, 
warned tfhat there is still an ac- 
tive Communist conspiracy work- 
ing in Guatemala. Two days after 
his speech delivered here July 25, 
the president of Guatemala, Cas- 
tillo-Armas was assassinated. 
Visiting Lecturer Named 
A visiting lecturer on campus 
this year will be Dr. Rudolph Ky- 
ler who is head of the Depart- 
ment of Economics and Business 
Administration of Bethany Col- 
lege, Bethany, W. Va. 

Grants Total $360,000 

Several research grants have 
been received from the Federal 



Department of Health, Education 
and Welfare. The largest of these 
is one for $360,000 for the study 
of major illnesses. The grant has 
been divided between the psychol- 
ogy laboratory in the new liberal 
arts building and the Science 
Center. 

Apartment Project Started 

Announced in July were the 
plans for a million dollar apart- 
ment project for junior faculty 
and married students. Sixteen 
buildings, will comprise the units 
to be built under the self-liquid- 
ating program of the University 
Building Association. Nearly 100 
low-rent units will be constructed. 

The apartments will be located 
south of the Atfhletic field on the 
soccer area. Another Building As- 
sociation dormitory is now under 
construction, number 15, a four- 
story brick building for 200 men 
students.

cope with another important 
aspect of educatioti, namely a 
real development of the student's 
mind which 'he thought could only 
be accomplished by a close 
contact with the professor. 

We must put more responsi- 
bility for education on the stu- 
dent himself. We must. Dr.

student to think for himself and 
work for his education instead 
of being given it.

What's a 'top man?' He's usually at top form 
in key situations. 

In bull sessions he knows what he's talking 
about. His views are backed by more fact 
and less bull. 

On dotes he's a master of lively conversa- 
tion. His talk is spiced with behind-the-scenes 
tid-bits on current affairs and pers^onalities. 
He has timely appeal. 

>" cfoss he has perspective. He knows more 
about the world today, and how it relates to 
the past and future. 



How come all this poise and know-how? He 
reads The New York Times every day. Do 
you? It's much more interesting, and he is,

Mickey Mouse Club Wins 
Sing Honors For Arnold 



Rendition Of "Alma Mater" 
Tops Tries Of Baker, Crabtree 

Dressed in black skirts, white blouses and wearing 
cardboard cutout ears of the Mickey Mouse club the girls 
of Arnold Dorm "squeaked out" first place in the annual 
freshman sing competition at the Cage Saturday evening 
singing the strains of the Alma Mater. 

The girls had composed new lyrics to the tune of the 
Mickey Mouse theme song extolling the virtues, beauty and 
ability of Arnold girls and they made a singing entrance 
holding signs and paper shakers. 

Revelers Sponsor Sing 



The Revelers organized the 
8ing and they had each freshman 
dorm learn each of the four songs 
in Iflie handbook. The dorm 
leaders then picked choices out 
of a hat just before going on 
stage. Norman Boucher, re- 
membered for his performance in 
"Paint Your Wagon", was the 
pong leader for Arnold. 

One of the men's dorms, Baker 
House, copped second place 
singing "When Twilight Shadows 
Deepen." The men were attired 
in white shirts and charcoal flan- 
nels and were led in their efforts 
by Marilyn "Dee Dee" MacLeod 
and Donald Gagnon. 

Intermission Acts 
The Revelers auditioned a 
number of freshman musicians 
and singers who i>erformed 
between acts. Gail Osbaldeston 
of Crabtree played an accord ian 
solo during the first intermission 
and John Sweeney of Baker pan- 
tomimed during the second in- 



termission. 

Thatcher, a new girl's dorm 
this year, took third place with 
their rendition of the "Fight 
Song". Robert "Skip" Danforth 
was Thacher's song leader. 

The judges for the sing were 
Doric Alviani of the music de- 
partment, Marilyn Gross of the 
Student Union planning board, 
and Robert Lentilhon, the Rev- 
elers' advisor. 

Crabtree House, led by Donald 
Hiller, followed with "Sons of the 
Valley". Their costumes were on 
a football theme. The Crabtree 
girls had padded shoulders under 
sweatshirts with large C's and 
contrasting black Bermudas. 

Van Meter was the final en- 
try and they also sang the 
"Fight Song". Joan Bernstein 
and Richard Robinson led Van 
Meter's eiTort.

were: Julie MacN'a\! >inKini;

Col. James Weaver Is 
ROTC Commander 



"All Army" would be the best 
way to sum up the life of the new 
Armored ROTC commander at 
UMass, Col. James R. Weaver. 

He was born in the Philippines 
in 1914, the son of Brig. Gen. 
(Ret.) J. R. N. Weaver, and was 
raised on various Arniy posts 
throughout the world. He might 
be considered a New Englander 
as he graduated from Portland, 
Me., High School in 1932. 

Col. Weaver followed in his 
father's footsteps when he en- 
tered West Point the following 
year. His father graduated from 
the Academy in 1911 and Col. 
Weaser got his gold bars in 1930. 

In the North African mvasion 
in World War II, Col. Weaver 
worked on the beach marking 
phase and received a Silver Star 
for his efforts. Following the 
North African campaign he ro-

Study Skills 
Group Forms 

Freshmen will get the opportu- 
nity to increase their study skills 
under a new program instituted 
this year by the Guidance OflSce. 

The organization of the study 
skills group will find ten freeh- 
men assigrned to each of the sec- 
tions. The limited number in each 
section will enable the members 
t>o discuss informally the study 
methods tha/t seem most useful 
to first year students. 

The program will prove of the 
utmost importance to you if you 
fall in one of the following cate- 
gories : 

1) Worked in spurts in high 
school 

2) Frequently raised high 
school grades to passing lev- 
el only by last minute cram- 
ming 

3) Reading is slow work and 
frequent re-reading of pages 
is necessary 

4) Lecture notes are incom- 
plete and fragmentary 

5) Attention wanders often 
while in class or studying 

6) .Sincere in desire to do a 
good job in college and want 
study methods to be wholly 
adequate

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 16. 1957 



aliTfor naught^ 

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to plan 
ahead. Let us relate to you a sad illustra- 
tration. This is the story of a particular 
Umie co-ed who worked as a waitress dur- 
ing the summer vacation. One day as she was 
wearily collecting her nickle and dime tips 
from her section of the dining room, a rather 
bright idea suddenly came upon her. "Aha," 
said she, "I've finally thought of a good use 
for my dime tips. I shall collect them in a 
jar and use them all year for the washing 
machines when I go back to school." 

Yes, this was a rather clever idea at the 
time, but the sad part of the story is that 
this little co-ed did not realize that as she 
was busily collecting her dimes, little grem- 
lins back at the university were just as bus- 
ily changing the washing machines to accept 
only quarters! 

This Not The Real Crime ... 
It is sad that our little co-ed's work was 
all in vain, but this is not what is really 
sad about this story. The real crime is the 
reason behind the rise in price of a load of 
washing. 

Two years ago washes were only a dime. 
Last year they were upped to twenty cents — 
and now they are a quarter. Cokes in the 
dorm vending machines were a nickel last 
yeai- — now they are a dime. The price of 
milk has been raised over the summer from 
ten to fifteen cents. 

Why this sudden zoom in prices? Is this 
the result of creeping (or galloping) infla- 
tion? Are the washing machine people and 
the coke and milk companies so hard up that 
they have to take it out on financially strug- 
gling students? 

... but the Monster BTAP 
Perhaps it will interest you to know that 
the owners of these dorm conveniences are 
not responsible for all this high finance. In 
fact they are very much opposed to this rise 
in price of their products, for now the stu- 
dents will frequent their machines less often. 
Who, then, or what can we blame for this 
unpardonable rise in prices? We can blame 
our new BTAP— better know as the Big 
Time Athletic Policy. This is the monster be- 
hind this newest evil on our fair campus. It 
has long been a policy here at the university 
for a certain percentage of the vending ma- 
chine profits to go into the athletic fund. But 
now the people behind our BTAP are no long- 
er satisfied with the regular percentage that 
they receive from said machines plus the 
thousands of dollars they collect from other 
sources for the Teams. Now they are im- 
poverishing the students to achieve their 
ends — and the students are not at all happy. 
Unfairness Should Be Ended 
Perhaps it is just as well that we don't 
drink as much coke — this is really pretty 
bad for us anyway. But milk is an essential 
food, and washing is absolutely imperative. 
These machines are placed in the dormitories 
for the convenience of the students — and 
now many students just cannot afford to 
pay for these conveniences. Many are wash- 
ing their clothes by hand in the sinks, many 
more are bringing their laundry home with 
them on weekends. If students are thirsty 
they think twice about spending the extra 
nickel for a bottle of milk or soda. 

This is very unfair, and somcthinfj should 
be done to stop it. Many of us are students 
at our state university because we cannot 
afford the higher tuition at other schools. 
Though we pay loss we ha\o tlie right to 
expect just as much intellectual stimulation 
here as at other colleges and universities. 
However, the trend at TTMass now is appar- 
ently toward bigger and Ixtter athletes, and 
not tmvard better libraries and prof.ssois. 
If v'c, ihr stiidnitf, mitf^t become poorer,

UMass Graduate Publishes 
Satire On Army Red Tape 

(Reprinted from the Boston Globe, Sept. 15, 1957) 

Military and Civil Service hrasH are due for a literary hot foot 
next month when a youn? Chicopee veteran, Leonard Drohan (UMass 
'49) publishes his first novel. 

Co7ne With Me to Macedonia by Mr. Drohan will be published 
in August by Alfred A. Knopf Co. 

"I think the book will cause some annoyance among the brass," 
says the author, "and the annoytuice will probably be in proportion 
to the rank." 

The novel deals with thr humorous antics of an imaginary Army 
Logistic Area office during the Korean War when the ultimate was 
hit in ridiculous red tape and befuddling bureaucracy. 

Drohan, who is 34, knows of what he writes. He hails from a 
Civil Service family and is himself a veteran of World War II and 
a federal employee. 

Some of the squirming in desk chairs after publication of the 
novel will be done very close to home because the author admits he 
drew on his experience at work in the Springfield Ordnance District 
located in the Springfield Armory. 

A graduate of the university in 1949 and Syracuse a year later 
where he received his master's degree, Drohan is employed by the 
Ordnance District as a management analyst. The District is res- 
ponsible for letting Army contracts with the industry in the area. 

There is no planned insult to anyone in federal service, says the 
author with a gleam in his eye, but rather a satire of the entire tidal 
wave of red tape that seems to have swept over all government trans- 
actions. 

So many times during his federal career, explains the author, 
things have happened to make people say, "Oh, if I could only write 
a book about all this red tape." And so it was that the idea began 
to form in his mind in January, 1955. Drohan, who had done no 
writing before, decided he would write a book and combine all the 
humor of bureaucratic bungling in it. 

*'In September of 1955 I found myself with 511 pages of rough 
draft and no place to take it," says Drohan. "I went up to the uni- 
versity to see Prof. Robeson Bailey who was teaching creative writ- 
ing. He read the manuscript and told me to do a lot of revising." 
After re-writing the book three times Drohan submitted the manu- 
script to a friend of Prof. Bailey's who is a literary agent for Knopf, 
and he soon received a wire from the publisher accepting his first 
novel.

Campus Comnient 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(The ideas and opinions expressed in this 
colu77in are those of Mr. Kominski and do not 
necessarily reflect the ideas and opinions of 
the staff of the Collegian.) 

The jukebox in the Hatch blares out with 
a hot rock and roll number (naturally) tell- 
ing us that "there's a whole lot of shaking 
goin' on." Need we be reminded? 

In the last couple of years a glance out 
of any window of any university building 
will remind you that there is a whole lot of 
shaking going on. If the ground isn't shak- 
ing from the rumble of construction crews 
putting together a new building, then it's 
shaking from the din made by wrecking 
crews who are tearing another one down. 

This "shaking" is all part of the univer- 
sity's expansion program. A program which 
is not doing too badly at all. In fact, the 
program received a lot of play in state news- 
papers this past summer. The play all cen- 
ters around the governor. His Excellency 
Foster Furcolo, who by the way, comes from 
this part of the state. 

It seems that a few editorial writers in 
the state felt it was time to rub a little poli- 
tics into the educational scene. Furcolo, 
after unsuccessfully attempting to get a state 
tax bill through the Massachusetts legisla- 
ture, tried his hand at another field, and in- 
troduced a bill before the governmental body 
to add new (more) members to the Board 
of Trustees of the university. 

Right away the scribes jumped on His 
Excellency's neck and claimed that he was 
trying to "pack" the board. The governor 
claimed the move to be for "greater citizen 
participation ;" the scribes called it "greater 
Furcolo control." Call it what you may, 
but the whole deal backfired right in the 
faces of the bigshot editorial writers of the 
state. 

Most of these scribes asked Furcolo what 
he was intending to do with the university's 
expansion program that was started during 
the Herter administration. The governor 
kept putting off his answer, and the writers 
began to put the pressure on. A local daily 
came out with an editorial comparing the 
efforts of the past and present administra- 
tions toward the university's growth. As 
was expected, the Furcolo administration 
wound up on the short end of the deal. Then 
the roof fell in. A few days later all the 
papers in the state carried headlines of Fur- 
colo's plan to ask for four million dollars to 
aid the university. 

Thus came the end to a summer fracas. 
A fracas that few of us knew existed be- 
cause we were too busy trying to keep cool 
during the dry summer and had not the time 
or effort to read what some silly writer had 
to say. If we had read the editorials, we 
would have been confronted with the choice 
as to which administration has done the 
most for UMass. It's your decision to make. 
You can relax for the time being, however, 
elections are a long way off.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16. 1957 



"Tough" Season Dawns For Redmen, 
Student Spirit Is Vital To Team 



CALLING ALL GREEKS 



The start of classes last week 
marked the end of double sessions 
for the Redmen football squad. 
Coach Charlie O'Rourke can work 
his tiny squad only once a day 
from now until the team opens 
against American International 
College this Saturday. 

Coach O'Rourke has a number 
of problems to work out in this 
short period of time. However, 
the greatest problem can not be 
solved by time. The size of the 
squad is amazingly small for the 
number of students enrolled here. 
Only 31 men reported for pre- 
season drills and no more men are 
expected to turn out. 

Injuries have kept contact 
work down to a minimum. A num- 
ber of minor injuries have pre- 
vented -Iftie squad from fielding 22 
athletes who are able to scrim- 
mage. O'Rourke feels this lack of 
contact work may delay the 
grooming of several sophomores 
who are expected to fill key posi- 
tions on the team. 

Another problem which will 
give O'Roui-ke plenty of trouble 
is tihe size of the team's backs. 
The Redmen have four backs that 
are barely five feet eight inches 
and two others that are shorter 
than five feet ten. These men will 
'have a little trouble covering 
some of the six feet plus ends 
the team must face during the 

season. 

One thing is certain, the Red- 



men will be well grounded in fun 
damentals. O'Rourke and his ca- 
pable assistants, Chet Gladchuck, 
Noel Reebenacker, and Dave In- 
gram, have stressed blocking and 
tackling since the start of prac- 
tice. 

JEFFS DOWN REDMEN IN 

SCRIMMAGE 
Amherst College took to the 
air for ifheir four touchdowns to 
defeat the Redmen 20-7 this past 
Saturday. The 30 minute scrim- 
mage saw only one UMass tally. 
The lone touchdown came on a 
pass from Billy Maxwell to John 
O'Keefe. Geri-y Wall's intercep- 
tion near the end of the half, set 
up the scoring drive. 

REYNOLDS LOST FOR 
A.I.C. TILT 
Halfback Billy Reynolds, one 
of O'Rourke's best backs, was in- 
jui>ed during the scrimmage, 
when he suffered a sprained an- 
kle. X-rays have been taken but 
it is believed that he will miss 
this Saturday's game with AIC. 
GET BEHIND THE TEAM 
UMass played AIC to a 6-6 tie 
last season. This year both teams 
have less deplAi due to the grad- 
uation of some of the key players 
of last season. Both teams had 
poor seasons last year and from 
all indications this year will not 
b*> much better. 
BERADI MOVES TO TACKLE 

One of the many shifts to be 
put into effect, before this week- 



end's opening game, came Friday, 
when Coa(^h O'Rourke moved let- 
tennan guard Phil Beradi to tac- 
kle. The 5'11" junior from All- 
ston handled the new position 
well and stood out in a heavy con- 
tact scrimmage. 



LUMENTI SHINES IN DEBUT 



Over the years the press {Col- 
legian) and other sources of news 
on this campus 'have often tended 
to build up the hopes of the foot- 
ball team to great heights. Then, 
a poor showing by the football 
team disappointed the UMass 
fans, \\%o had anticipated a 
"bang-up" season, due to unreal- 
istic sports coverage. 

This year, we at the sports de- 
partment are taking a more con- 
structive and objective view of 
the situation. 

This is a building year for 
Coach O'Rourke and his able 
staff. We are not extremely opti- 
mistic about our tiny Redmen 
squad for this season. By the 
same token we are not deeply 
pessimistic. 

This will be a tough year for 
the team. A year in which victor- 
ies will not come easily. The one 
thing, the most important and 
most vital element necessary to 
our team is the spirit which you, 
the students of UMass, have. 
Your spirit can go a long way in 
making this a successful football 
season. Plan to be on hand, up in 
the stands, When we open against 
AIC this coming Saturday after- 
noon. 



The Fraternities and Sororities 
are hereby invited to participate 
in a sports column to be devoted 
to fraternity and sorority sports. 
The column will consist of news 
concerning sports activities of the 
houses, scores of the contests, and 
other interesting sidelights which 
have to do with the sports pro- 
grams of Hhe individual houses. 

Each house is asked to nomi- 
nate an informer at their first 
meeting this week, who will sub- 
mit information regarding any 



and all spoi-ts from his or her re- 
spective house, which will be of 
general interest to tAie campus. 
All information should be submit- 
ted to the Greek Sports Editor 
who will edit the column. 

This could be a fine rushing 
point for your house. Keep the 
freshmen on campus informed 
about the goings-on at your 
house. 

Get your reporters elected and 
your first reports submitted as 
soon as possible. 



Looking very impressive in his 
first major league start left- 
hander Ralph Lumenti pitched 
seven innings of brilliant ball for 
Washington this past Saturday. 
Ralph struck out five, walked and 
gave up three hits before being 
lifted for a pinch hitter in the 
eighth inning. The weak hitting 
Washington Club won the game 
in the tenth inning on a home run 
by Roy Sievers. The victory was 



credited to reliefer Pedro Ramos. 

As things turned out, Pete 
Runnels who batted for Lumenti 
r.ied out. Ramos turned in a 
creditable job giving up only one 
hit over the three innings which 
he worked. 

Washington deeply pntrenrhed 
in 7th place will look to Lumenti 
aas one of the hopeful additions 
for a first division bid next sea- 
son. 



SIDELIGHTS 
ON SPORTS 

The University of Connecticut 
football team wound up its heavy 
practice this past Saturday with 
an intrasquad scrimmage. Coach 
Bob Ingalls observed that he ex- 
pects better depth than previous- 
ly anticipated. 



Don't feel too bad about the 31 

men on the Redmen football 
squad, AIC will meet UMass with 
only 33 players — this may be a 
very interesting ballgame — the 
battle of the midgets??? 



This Saturday will see hun- 
dreds of high school students 
wandering over our campus. It 
will be the annual high school 
day at the UNIVERSITY. 



Arnold Wins . . .

John Getter, both of Baker. 

William Labelle, co-chairman 
of Reveler's, acted as Master of 
Ceremonies for the affair. Other 
Revelers who helped to organize 
the sing were: Sandra Hecht, co- 
chairman, Rita Capolupo, Robert

Cleo Zoukis. 



INTRAMURALS 

Intramural Action This 
Week; Rosters Due Tues. 

The final preparatory steps in 
the intramural football program 
will be completed Tuesday when 
the fraternity i-osters are turned 
in after tflie officials get their 
briefing tonight at a 7:30 p.m. 
meeting in the cage. 

The Dormitory league has been 
increased to ten teams with two 
each from Baker and Van Meter 
being admitted to the loop. The 
decision to include both A and B 
teams from the two Fro^h dorms 
resulted from both the desire to 
keep the Independent leagrue 
down to a feasible number of 
teams and the fact that both of 
the mammoth dorms house a 
great number of students. 

The Dormitory league will 
commence their season next Mon- 
day and the rosters for that cir- 
cuit are due Thursday of this 
week. Penalties for late return of 
rosters will cost the offending 
outfits a forfeit of one game for 
<>ach dav the rosters are late.

THE MIXTURE AS BEFORE 

Today begins my fourth year of writing this column 
and, as before. 1 will continue to explore the issues that 
grip the keen young mind of campus America— burning 
questions like "Should housemothers be forced to retire 
at 28?' and "Should pajamas and robes be allowed at 
tirst-hour cla.sses?" and "Should proctors be armed?" and 
"Siunild picnicking be permitted in the stacks?" and 
"Should teachers alwve the rank of associate professor 
be empowered to perform marriages?" and "Sliould cap- 
ital punishment for pledges be abolished?" 




^i//</ cmtMpunisknentldrpleSes be sbdiskJP 



Philip Morris Incorporated sponsors this column. 
Philip Morris Incorporated makes Philip Morris ciga- 
rettes. They also make Marlboro cigarettes. Marlboro is 
what I am going to talk to you about this year. 

Before beginning the current series of columns, I made 
an exhaustive study of Marlboro advertising. This took 
almost four minutes. The Marlboro people don't waste 
words. They give it to you fast: "You get a lot to like 
in a Marlboro . . . Filter . . . I'lavor . . . Flip-top Box." 

\\'ell. sir, at first this approach seemed to me a little 
terse, a bit naked. Perhaps, thought I, I should drape 
it with a veil of violet prose, adorn it with a mantle of 
fluffy adjectives, dangle some participles from the ears 
. . . But thoti 1 thought, what for? Doesn't thit tell the 
whole Marlboro story? . . . Filter . . . Flavor . . . Flip-top 
Box. 

Marllwro tai^tes great. The filter works. So does the 
box. What else do you need to know? 

So, with the Marlboro story quickly told, lot us turn 
immediately to the chief problem of undergraduate life— 
the money problem. This has always been a vexing 
dilemma, even in my own college days. I recall, for 
example, a cla-ssmate named OUver Hazard Sigafoos. a 
great strapping fellow standing 14 hands high, who fell 
in love with a beautiful Theta named Nikki Spillane, 
with hair like beaten gold and eyeballs like two table- 
spoons of forgettulness. 

Every night Oliver Hazard would take Nikki out to 
dine and dance, and then to dine again, for dancing made 
Nikki ravenous. Then they would go riding in the swan 
boats, and then Nikki, her apjx'tite sharjwned by the sea 
air, would have 8 or 10 cutlets, and then OHver Hazard 
would take her home, stopping on the way to buy her a 
pail of oysters or two. 

To raise money for thc^c enchanted evenings, Oliver 
llazanl took on a numlwr of part-time jobs. Between 
cla.«*ses he cut hair. After school he gutted perches. From 
du.'-k to midnight he vulcanized medicine balls. From 
midnight to dnwn he trapped night crawlers. 

This ero\\<Ud schedule took, ala.s, a heavy toll from 
Oliver ll.'izanl. In the space of a month he dwindled from 
2<>0 to 101 pounds— but that, curiously rnough. pnn'cd 
his >:il\ation.

Beginning with this semester, 
however, the credits of the failed 
course will be counted in c<'ni|uit-

even when the course is repeated 
and passt'<i. No matter how many 
times the course is it ; ;uid 

failed, the ci'edit.s fiun .m. it

cumulative credit record. If the 
course is i^^peated and passetl, 
the credits and quality points so 
earned will be counted in comput- 
ing the cumulative average. 



UNIV. SENATE CHANGES 
QUALITY POINT SYSTEM 

The University Senate at its 
meeting of Sei)teml>er 12, l!t'>T, 
voted to delete from the Quality 
Point Grading System Regula- 
tions that section which states 
that "when a failed course is re- 
peated only the last grade, credits 
and points are considered in o<im- 
j)Uting l^he cumulative aveia^e." 
This action is etTectivi' beuiniiiii^^ 
with the first semester of the col- 
lege year 1957-1958. 

In other words, thi- action is 
not retroactive. A student with 
a course failed before this semes- 
ter still has the privilege of re- 
peating tlie course. If it is passed, 
the original credits are not in- 
cluded in computing the cumula- 
tive credits. The original failure 
remains on the permanent record

dent Senate will ha held this

The first annual Fall Carni, sponsored by the Student 
Union Program committee, will be held this Saturday at 
7:30 p.m. in the main ballroom of the S.U. 

All fraternities, sororities and dormitories are eligible 
to set up booths; and the committee requests all interested 
groups to contact the Program Office in the Union before 
Thursday, Sept. 19. 

Booths may be set up any time Friday afternoon or 
Saturday morning. The Interfraternity Council will award 

trophies to the best booth in each 
of the four di\'isions: fraterni- 
ties, sororities, mens' dormitories, 
and womens' dormitories. 
Dancing Held in Evening 

Prizes can be won at each 
booth on the midway and will be 
provided by the Union. In the 
small ballroom dancing "Rose- 
land Style" will be held all even- 
ing. There will be no admission 
charge to enter the Union Carni. 

According to Marilyn Gross, 
Special Events Committee Pro- 
gram Director, the carni "pro- 
vides a chance for the university 
to get together as one united 
group, 

"P'raternities, sororities and 
dormitories are co-operating 
together, and any money made 
at this event will go to charity." 

Success Depends On Students 

Simplicity rather than elabor- 
ateness should be the goal of 
tiinse organization.^ int. rested in 
having a Marilyn .^ays. 

Booths can -m,i\ doimi ;i-; lung as 
the students want. 

"Whether the Fall Carni i.s a 
success this year or not depends 
upon the student turnout. If it 
lA, the Carni may be considered 
as the e.^tablishment of a new 
tradition on campus." 



Blood Drive 
Keynoted By 
Dean Curtis 

by STAN RUSEK 

Stressing the humanitarian 
aspects of the annual Campus 
Blood Drive, Dean Helen Curtis 
keynoted the campaign's organi- 
zational meeting which was held 
in the Plymouth Room of the 
Student Union Monday afternoon 
at 4 p.m. 

The Blood Drive is sponsored 
for the Red Cross by t*he Campus 
Religious Council which has ac- 
quii-ed a new name. The old title 
was Inter-faith Council. 

The chairmanship of the Coun- 
cil rotates yearly among the three 
faiths repre.senieii. This year's 
chairmanship is iield by tJie New- 
man Club representative, Stani- 
slaus Rusek. Since the Campus 
Religious Council is undei-taking 
the drive Rus«?k automatically in- 
herits the chairmanship. 

In a combi led effort which is 
coordinated in order to pro<1uce 
a successful drive the three 
faiths have pooled ten members 
each forming an organizational 
nucleus of thirty. 

Father David Power, Newman 
Club advisor and Rev. Albert L. 
Seely, advisor to the Christian 
Association, were Iwth present at 
the meeting and expressed their 
wishes for a successful cami)aign. 
Rabbi Ruchames, adviser to the 
third member of the Council was 
unable to attend. 

Dean Hopkins was present at 
the meeting.

Univ. Handbook 
Lists Correction 

Page 17 at the bottom of the 
page m the Handbook should be 
corrected to read "that begin- 
ning wit^i the fall semester 
1957-1958, Fri'shmen and Soph- 
omore required Military will 
carry one seme-ster hour of 
credit each semester and will 
be included in computing the 
quality point average." 

Last year students in ROTC 
did not receive any crfniit to- 
ward their a%'erage for learning 
miliUuy subjects. 



Lit. Society Hears 
Steinbeck Record 

A Steinbeck tape highlighted a 
coffee hour held by the Literary 
Society at the Reception Room of 
Hamlin Dormitoi-y last night. 

Faculty and students heard 
Steinljeck read parts of his 
works at the society's first meet- 
ing this year. 

The tape has a curious history. 
Mr. Steinlx^ck who refused an in- 
vitation to read for recording 
purposes at tlie university finally 
consented to be recorded at the 
United Nations' Studios. 

Miss Rita Houssman, chairman 
of the Literary Society, present- 
ed tentative plans for future 
meetings. 

The plans discussed included 
an invitation to Mr. Leonard 
Drohan, a former student at the 
university, and the author of 
the recently jjublished novel, 
("rin < 11 '/; Me To Mncedoniti.

THE MASSACHISETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBEH 18. 1957

THE UNION... POOL 
HALL OR PALACE 

Not too long ago we lieard someone on 
this reservation refer to the Student Union, 
new on our campus last year, as "the only- 
marble columned pool hall since the days of 
the ancient Greeks." This is certainly an 
amusing analogy, and everyone chuckled 
heartily, but perhaps friend jester is not so 
far from wrong. 

The l^nion calendar for the fall term is 
jammed with events. There is hardly a night 
without some kind of program planned — pro- 
grams ranging from billiards tournaments 
to 25^ movies. This week we even have a car- 
nival. Yippee! Let's join the fun, gang! 

Keep-the-Klds-off-the-Streetism 

The philosophy seems to be the same here 
as in the youth centers in the cities — give 
the kids something to do to keep them off 
the streets (only here instead of streets, un- 
fortunately it is books). This would be a 
pretty dreary world if there were not fun and 
relaxation, but perhaps there is no group of 
people anywhere more proficient at fun and 
good times than college students. Certainly 
we don't need any encouragement. 

Should a Student Union at a university 
function as a youth center, or should it in- 
stead serve as a place for the students to 
use at their leisure — to chat, to laugh, to 
study, to hold meetings? Was it built to be 
an entertainment hall, another extracurricu- 
lar activity, or was it built to just be there 
for the convenience of the student? Perhaps 
most important of all, will it turn into noth- 
ing more than a "marble columned pool hall," 
or will it serve as a medium for promoting 
intellectualism and individualism on this 
campus, elements which should be supreme 
in an academic community? 

The Union is very young. It will have 
its first birthday next February. What sort 
of a place do you want it to be? 



YES, BUT WHEN 
DO WE STUDY? 

These were the words of a bewildered 
freshman as she trooped over to see her big 
sister in an upperclass dormitory. She was 
worried. Here she was at school for a little 
less than one week, and already she felt 
snowed under with no immediate hope of 
recovery. 

The older sister tried to ease the fur- 
rowed brow of the baby of the family by tell- 
ing her there was nothing to worry about — 
that most of the 'fan-fare' was over. The 
younger girl just wanted to be reassured 
that all was not lost, and consequently felt 
much better — but she frankly was still wor- 
ried about the 'fanfare.' It was fun at first, 
she thinks, but will it never stop? 

The 'fan-fare' to which she refers is of 
course the gala orientation program for the 
benefit (or the detriment) of the incoming 
frosh. Though it is fun for a while, not only 
is it a faulty introduction to university life, 
but it continues for the first few days of 
classes. Freshmen are plagued with so many 
compulsory meetings and such, that it is 
practically impossible for them to sit down 
to study. The frosh are both pampered like 
babies and cxix*cted to get every assignment 
read and problem completed before 'lights 
out' at 11. 

Perhaps much of the fault for the great 
number «)f failures on Dean's Saturday lies 
in the individual student — and then again 
mayl>e just as much lies in the planners of 
the freshman orientation program. There 
is simp'y too much going on for a freshman 
to cope with. 




"My roommate likes the windows closed and I like 'em 
open So we compromised." 

Machmer Mirror 

Time: Around 8:50 a.m. — Place: Front steps of Machmer 
. . . Stocky fre.shman clambering up steps. Little beanie perched 
on his wide dome. . . One, two, three (Yes, I know how to count), 
must be hugging at least six books against his belt. Makes him look 
all the more obese. . . Act.s as if he's in a hurry. Hops between three 
upperclassmen. Hops? No, 'wobbles' should be the word. . . Voice 
from behind bellows in my ear (No. I'm not that poor chump run- 
ning): "Hey, slow down! You weren't meant to be a ballet dancer, 
not with a form like that!" . . . Too late. He trips, tumbles backwards 
down the steps. Books topple on top of him. . . Another command 
performance. Everybody giggles. One throaty laugh echoes above 
all the others, a very scornful one. . . Belongs to a blonde, cute num- 
ber, even with her knobby nose. Too bad. She carries an affected air 
about her. Obviously she's just become a sophomore. . . She cackles 
louder, very hoarse, nightmarish, like Dracula (if you caught the 
Late, Late Show on TV the other night). . . The stocky center of 
attraction tries to pull himself together, quails under the derisive 
pairs of eyes all around. . . Meanwhile Blondie, contempt written all 
over her, points at him. Yes, she actually points at him! . . . Have 
to admit though, her measurements are ideal. Crewneck sweater 
bulges in all the strategic spots. Repeat, cute number, . . Sports a 
fraternity pin. And that haunting cackle, louder than ever. Yet 
everybody else has stopped laughing. . . Come to think of it, Blondie 
looks kind of ridiculous herself. But then, don't we all at one time 
or another? . . . And the bell rings, and the crowd going in elbows 
the crowd coming out. Two guys loitering behind. Let's eavesdrop on 
their conversation. (Or doesn't McGraw, Private Eye, appeal to you, 
high brow?) . . . "Man, I feel sorry for that sad sack. He's been 
putting in a couple hours extra down at the Cage for the past couple 
weeks now." Hmmm, sympathy . . . "He's trying to get rid of that 
excess fat, huh?" It's the same voice, the one that bellows in your 
ear. . , Sympathizer: "Yeah, he's trying out for the frosh football 
team." . . . Bellower: "He'd make a good tackle, maybe. Katless, 
that is. Got to give him credit though. He's got will power. Wi; h 
I had some. Then maybe I could quit drinking." . . . Sympathizer: 
"Same here. History's got me snowed under. I know I ought to study 
more, but there's always so much going on. Better hustle. We're 
going to be late." . . . Bellower, bleary eyes and all, passes close, real 
close. Catch a whiflF of that odor! Smell it? Stale. Like a brewery. 
(Well, that's what I get for hanging around and snooping.) . . . 
Bellower, passing through swinging doors, bellows, "Say, there's a 
big party down the house tonight. Free booze! How about it? Com- 
ing with me?" . . . How can you win? They're inside now. Wonder 
what the answer was. Couldn't hear it. Got caught in the swinging 
doors. 

There're some poor souls too blind to recognize their own faults; 
and then there're some folks who see their faults and conscientiously 
set about to correct them. Unfortunately, the majority of us just 
talk about our faults, and never take any action. 



Campus Comment 

by JOHN hOMINSKI 

(Th( attitudes and opinions e.rjn(sst<i m 
this column are those of Mr. Kominski and 
do not necessariJj reflect those of the Cnlle- 
(jian staff.) 

Well, it's time for a story again, and a 
bit of explaining on the side. 

Today's tale centers around the current 
edition of the Freshman Directory or "mug- 
book" as it may be known to some. 

It seems as if the mugbooks were a bit 
late in arriving this year and therefore they 
could not be sold to freshmen along with 
their beanies and placards. The Key and the 
Scrolls were getting a bit edgy; they were 
starting to wonder whether or not the frosh 
would get any mugbooks at all. 

Finally, to everyone's relief, the books 
arrived in time for the frosh to get them at 
registration. But why were they late, and 
why was the contract date violated? This 
was the question that was bothering the 
editors and the Registrar's ofllice. They re- 
ceived their answer — at least an acceptable 
one. 

The printer sang out with a sad tale 
about humidity and ink running and impos- 
sible conditions to print under and what-not. 
His reasons for delivering the books late 
were accepted, but his mugbooks certainly 
were not. Complaints ranged from "pic- 
tures are too dark" to the editor's own com- 
plaint that "they were not what I had ex- 
pected: I'm not too pleased." But, as usual, 
complaints never last long, and in no time 
they were forgotten. Forgotten until — 

BOOM, last Saturday morning the roof 
fell in. The Springfield Union carried the 
news on the fi'ont page, pictures and all. It 
seems that our apologetic printer had more 
reasons than he had given for the books be- 
ing late. The truth of the matter was that 
he simply couldn't have had the time to 
spend with mugbooks — he was too hu^sy 
printing counterfeit money and phony Amer- 
ican Telephone and Telegraph stock certifi- 
cates. If that little bit of information didn't 
lower a few mouths around here then cer- 
tainly nothing else could have. 

The printer, who handled last year's 
Indc.r and also the yearbook for the Ameri- 
can International College, was arrested along 
with two other men in on the ring when 
$77,000 in bogus money was delivered to a 
Secret Service agent. Secret Service agents 
also found negatives for Canadian currency 
in $10, $20, and $50 denominations and neg- 
atives and plates for AT&T stock. 

Well, that puts the damper on the story 
of the tardy mugbooks and does just about 
the same for one man who really tried to 
"make money" in the printing business.

Two young Hungarians have 
begun engineering studies at the 
UM this fall — brought here by 
the impetus of student interest 
and university cooperation. 

Paul Varga and Robert Ratay 
are enrolled in the School of En- 
gineering with tuition paid by 
University Foreign Student Scho- 
larships and all other living ex- 
penses covered by a self-imposed 
tax by members of the Inter- 
Fraternity Council. 

Last winter the IFC approached 
university officials with a plan to 
sponsor two Hungarian students. 
IFC Covers Cost 

Negotiations began with 
Work! University Service, and 
the two young men were selected. 

The IFC men signed obligations 
to cover the costs of housing and 
feeding the students, as well as 
pro\iding funds for books, cloth- 
ing, travel, vacation and summer 
room and board. 

The expenses of the two Hun- 
garians will run to a total of 
$1900 a vear with each IFC mem- 
ber [laying up to $1 per semester 
for five years. 
Varga Taught At Trade School 

Arriving at Camp Kilmer \\nth 
the influx of Hungarian escapees 
last winter, the two Hungarians 
have been studying English at 
the University of Miami and later 
working in communities in Illi- 
nois and New Jersey. 

Both are 21 years of age and 
have had college preparatory 
courses in engineering. 

Varga has taught at a technical 
trade school and will major in 
mechanical engineering. He left 
Hungary on November 10, 1956 
and entered the United States on 
December 1. 

Students left Hungary in 1956 

When he heard of his selection 
by the university, he res|>onded, 
"I never believed I could enter 
an American university. My 
dieam has come true." 

Robert Ratay, born in Buda- 
pest, left Hungary on November 
28, 19.^6 and entered this country 
in February. He will be fed at 
fraternity houses on a rotating 
basis. 

Til,' S')r(irity fouiitt'ipart to 
IFC, the Pan-Hellenic Council, 
has voted to supply funds for 
books estimated to be $75 per 
.student a year. 
Schmidt Was Sponsoring Leader 

Charles T. Schmidt, a June 
graduate of the university, was 
leader of the IFC group sponsor- 
ing the students. He was IFC 
treasurer and a member of Kappa 
Signa. He is a re.<iident of Taun- 
ton at 4 Jackson St. 

Chairman of the project this 
fall is Edward C. Osmond, a 
senior, of Ea.<»t St., Wayland, a 
member of .Vlpha Gamma Rho. 
Working with Osmond will be 
Donald Taub, a .senior of Tau 
Epsilon Phi and a resident of 27 
Summer St., Plymouth. Another 
student on the Committee is 
Stephen Sackmary, a sophomore 
of Phi Sigma Delta, of 25 Wol- 
cott St. Dorchester. 

Retraction 

The Collegian regrets that 
due to a reporting error, That- 
cher Dormitory was given rec- 
ognition as third place winner 
in the Freshman Sing held last 
Saturday night. 

The judges actually picked 
Crabtree Donnitory to the third 
place prize. L«><1 by K. v.lf r l><m- 
aid Hiller, the girls sang "Sons 
of the Valley." 



Sidney F. Wexler, associate 
professor of romance languages 
and adviser to foreign students; 
and William C. Starkweather, 
assistant registrar, and adviser 
to IFC are faculty advisers for 
project. 



Blood Drive . . . 

(Continued from }ja<je 1) 
resentative, presented plans for 
t'he drive and passed on useful 
infoiTnation gathered from fomi- 
er drives. 

Mrs. Levine, a representative 
of the Faculty Women's Club, 
stressed the importance of send- 
ing letters to those parents of 
students who are under 21 and 
wish to donate. 

Bertram Silk, last year's drive 
chaiiTnan, olfered his sei-vices and 
experience in an effort to help 
coordinate this year's drive. 

The nucleus forming members 
of the drive are: 

Newnian Club — Chairman, 
Stanislaus Rusek; Members: Bon- 
nie Peach, Phyllis Baron, Dan 
Bonasoni, John McAteer, An- 
thony Favello, Gene Hale, Barrie 
Sullivan, Betsy McCormick, Dan 
Kelly, John Lynch; Alternates, 
Nancy Boyd and Sheila DriscoU. 

Christian Association — Council 
Representative, Bob Larson ; 
Members: Marcia Hubbard, Gail 
Totman, Barbette Totman, Bob- 
bie Bumiston, Lucy Clark, Ar- 
thur Mahoney, Robert Lindquist, 
Charlie Carlson, Peter Thompson, 
George Gee. 

Hillel Foundation — C o u n c i 1 
Repre.sentative, Joan Lack; Mem- 
bers: Betram Silk, Lee dayman, 
Myrna Saltman, Marlene Sandler, 
Marv Wallman, Cynthia Katz, 
Yorkette Solomon, Judy Abrams, 
incomplete list. 

The drwe will take place in 
the ballroom of the Student Un- 
ion on November 6th and 7th. 
Subscriptions for donations will 
be solicited beginning October 
14im. 

Chairman Rusek stated that he 
was not in favor of setting a 
goal. However, he was interested 
in topping previous records. He 
further stated that th(> diivc was 
important because its motives 
wore purely altruistic. "We are 
conducting this drive with t'he 
thought in mind that the benefits 
will be felt by other people in 
need. Our motives are unselfish 
because we will not be exposed 
to temptations of materialistic 
gain," 'he stated. 

Plans to enter a float in the 
Float Parade w^ith the theme of 
Blood Donation will be discussed 
at the group's next meeting 
which will be held in two weeks.

Roister Doisters Pick 
New Fall Production 

Teahouse Of August Moon 
Is Former Broadway Hit 



Sakini will live again on the 
Bowker stage when the curtain 
goes up on Teahouse of the 
August Moon, this year's Roister 
Doister presentation. 

The successful Broadway play 
by John Patrick based on a novel 
by Vern Sneider will be directed 
by Henry Peirce of the speech 
depai-tment. 

Eighteen men, eight women, 
three children, and one goat make 
up the cast of the play which 
has won both a Pulitzer Prize 
and the Circle Critics Award. 
A Popular Film 

The play was converted into 
a very popular film last year 
starring Marlon Brando and 
Glenn Ford. 

Atkinson Praises Play 

Atkinson of the Times called 
the play "Completely captivating, 
delightful". 



Hawkins in the N.Y. ]yiirld 
Telegram, called it " a howling 
hit. It kept the premiere audience 
rocking with ecstatic and up- 
roarious laughter. This is an en- 
chanting play filled with the most 
extraordinary good sense about 
human and international rela- 
tions." 

The Roister Doisters is the uni- 
versity dramatic society. They 
pi-esent two pixnluctions each 
year, one each semester. Fresh- 
men with a dramatic inclination 
are invited to tiy out. 

Tryouts will be held on next 
Monday and Tuesday nights at 
7 p.m. in the Student Union. 

Crew members, associater 
directoi*s and stage managers are 
asked to sign up at the same time. 
Rehearsals will begin on Thurs-

I'MVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

SU CARNIVAL 
IS POSTPONED 

It was announced late last 
night that the Student Union 
Carnival schedule for this week- 
end would be postponed until 
later in the semester. 

Insufficient time for the desir- 
able organizational structure and 
the athletic activity of the week- 
end were the main reasons for 
the postponement. 

To Be Rescheduled 

Any sorority, fraternity, or 
doimitory which had prepared a 
booth is requested to hang on to 
it as the Carnival will definitely 
be taking place later in the sem- 
ester, most likely during the 
break between the fall and winter 
sports seasons.

VENDING MACHINE 
FACTS UNCOVERED 

A rise in prices in vending ma- 
chines in dorms and houses has 
occurred, Warren P. McGuirk, 
Director of Athletics, announced 
Thursday. 

Six dilTerent vending machines 
submitted bids to mid- August to 
the Athletic Council. 

The rise in coke prices is a 
standard raise throughout the 
entii-e country. Coo-a Cola is now 
being bottled in larger bottles and 
the price raised in j)rn|)oi-tion. 



Resignations 

Two resignations were accept- 
ed: that of Richard Feola '60,

THE MASSACHISETTS COLLEGIAN. FHIDAY. SEPTEMBER 20. 1957 



McGuirk Explains 
BTAP To Campus 

In an interview with the editorial editor 
of the Collegian yesterday, Warren P. Mc- 
Guirk, Director of Athletics at the univer- 
sity, gave his side of the now famous vend- 
ing machine issue. 

McGuirk first outlined the background 
and general set-up of the concession pro- 
gram on this campus. He said it was origin- 
ated back in 1950 when the Athletic Council 
felt the urgency of more funds for athletic 
scholarships. By this program the Athletic 
Council was to receive a certain percentage 
of the profits earned from all the vending 
machines on the university campus. This 
plan was accepted by the administration and 
voted on favorably by the Board of Trustees. 
This year the bids were higher than in 
previous years, and it was necessary there- 
fore for the prices of the vending machines 
to be higher also. According to McGuirk, 
the higher prices were not initiated by the 
Athletic Council, but by the vending ma- 
chine companies themselves, and he added 
further that the Council always keeps the 
welfare of the student uppermost in its 
mind in any decision that it makes. 

The rise in the price of coke, reported 
the Director of Athletics, is nation-wide. 
The Coca-Cola company will not install 
nickel machines anywhere in the country 
anymore. Therefore this is the explanation 
for the rise in the price of coke. 

As far as milk is concerned, McGuirk 
maintained that the Council never was in 
favor of the fifteen cent machines, but that 
they were installed anyway throughout the 
<»mpus. However these contracts have been 
revoked in the past few days, and starting 
today, milk will be back to a dime in all the 
vending machines. 

* The washing machines are another story. 
Here, says McGuirk, the reasons behind the 
rise in price from twenty cents to twenty- 
five cents are two-fold. First of all, the cost 
has been tremendous. In the past three years 
every old washing machine on the campus 
has been replaced — that is to say, at the 
present time there are no washing machines 
in any dormitory which are older than three 
years. Another added expense is the main- 
tenance man hired by the washing machine 
company to keep said machines in good work- 
ing order. The second reason given by Mc- 
Guirk concerning this particular rise in 
price is based on a nation-wide survey which 
stated that the average price of washing 
machines is twenty-five cents. At some 
schools it is higher than this, and at some, 
it is lower. This then is McGuirk's story. 

The Collegian editor also interviewed Mr. 
Edward Shea, Director of Sports Publicity 
at the university, and asked Mr. Shec if, on 
the average, the percentage received by the 
athletic fund from the vending machines was 
greater this year than in past years, and he 
said that it was slightly higher. Therefore, 
with a slightly higher percentage and higher 
prices, the fund will benefit more this year 
than in other years. 

When asked what would happen to the 
machines if the students continued to boy- 
cott them and both the vending machine 
companies and the athletic fund lost money. 
Shea said that he thought it would be good 
business to lower the prices on the washing 
machines. However, it was McGuirk's opin- 
ion that if the boyeott continued, the ma- 
chines would be removed from the dorms. 
Meanwhile the students continued to 
bring their laundry home with them on 
\v(>ekends. and wash it in the dormitory 
sinks rather than pay the piice of a wash. 
According to McGuirk. the BTAP did not 
raise the prices of the machines. However, 
the students are still pretty mad.

Glenn Tinder Of Governmenf 
Dept. Returns From Europe 

by LOKNA REGOLSKY 

^^ l ytjL 'i , .. ' England in the fall, Spain 
in the winter, Italy in the 
spring, and Paris in the 
summer. They sound like a 
list of song titles. Those 
evocative names, which we 
read about and wonder about 
but rarely get a chance to 
know directly, comprised the 
itinerary of Mr. Glenn Tin- 
der, a young member of our 
government depart me n t 
who took a leave of absence 
last year to travel in Europe. 
Mr. Tinder is very much 
MR. GLENN TINDER aware of how important it 

is for Americans to understand Europeans. Europe is the 
source and the center of our civilization, and before we can 
fully understand ourselves we must have a deeper under- 
standing of our roots. 

Dr. Tinder stayed in the south of Spain in Andalucia. 
He and his wife rented a house in Torremolinas, a small 
fishing village about eight miles from Malaga. Here they 
were among a warm and simple people who lived close to 
their animals and their earth in a setting of great dramatic 
beauty. Their lives have continued without much change 
from century to century, and this serenity is reflected in 
the easy and natural tempo of their existence. In the sim- 
plicity of their lives they find a wholesome and a security 
few of us will ever know. 

Mr. Tinder and his wife traveled from Spain to Italy, 
where they rented an apartment in Florence. These ultra- 
sophisticated surroundings (Tinder said that Florence is a 
very fashionable and intellectual center indeed) were in di- 
rect contrast to the Spanish fishing village. But how in- 
spiring it was to be in that splendid old city which still re- 
tains the atmosphere of dignity and grandeur that disting- 
uished it during the Renaissance. For Florence, like Athens, 
had an age of glory, and Machiavelli and Michelangelo trav- 
eled through the same streets and saw many of the same 
buildings one may see in Florence today. This was partic- 
ularly exciting to Tinder, who found himself physically sur- 
rounded by a past he had studied and read and speculated 
about 

A comment, which I found illuminating, was made by 
Mr. Tinder about the French. "The French people, who are 
passionately interested in ideas and political matters, tend 
to reduce all issues to principles." Human beings are usu- 
ally more rigid and dogmatic about principles than about 
specific issues. A person's principles are his way of life, 
and naturally he will fight to defend his way of life. Per- 
haps this is a partial explanation of the frequent internal 
conflicts for which the French people are rather notorious. 

The antagonism the French feel toward America is 
easy to understand. France was once a powerful nation, 
and the strength she possessed is now largely in our hands. 
Of course she is frustrated by her loss and regards us as 
interlopers. This feeling is aggravated by the many Ameri- 
can tourists who use their power and money indiscrimin- 
ately. 

When we understand our European neighbors we will 
come closer to understanding ourselves, and until this un- 
derstanding is achieved, we can never attain the richness 
our own civilization may someday be capable of. 



TO THE EDITOR... 

Shoo Fly 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

From the outside, the Student Union is a mag- 
nificent looking building. In fact the exotic design 
of the imported marble is enough to captivate even 
the mo.st unappreciative of beauty. As we proceed 
down the marble stairway we look forward to a 
delicious cup of coffee shared with fellow students 
in our beloved Hatchet and Pipe. However, there 
is one catch — it is almost impossible to find an 
empty table through the maze of flies. It's bad 
enough fighting the freeloaders whom you can 
recognize and ignore, but how do you ignore 69,000 
flics? 

We would like to offer a suggestion which may 
ease this problem and yet offer some enjoyment. 
Rent fly-swatters and score cards to the students as 
they enter the Hatch. This is only a suggestion and 
is not intended to discriminate against fly lovers.

Freedom Of Speach 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

"The Federal Court judge for the Middle District 
of Tennessee said that freedom of speech did not 
give a person the right to speak in favor of defiance 
of a federal law." Judge William E. Miller used this 
reason to justify his use of our country's laws to 
impose restraint on John Kaspar and the other agi- 
tators who caused racial disturbance, over integra- 
tion, in the South. Something about this action 
strikes mc as being unjust or wrong, T thoroughly 
agree that these agitators should be restrained. I 
also believe that law is the best way to restrain 
them. However, I disagree with Judge Miller's rea- 
son. He has, in effect, placed a limit upon one of 
our basic freedoms, those freedoms which form the 
basis for our democracy. Once a freedom is limited, 
it no longer exists in its original sense. Its mean- 
ing is no longer valid. It has, in essence, been killed. 
It must be reborn and reestablished before it can 
once again be effective. More essentially, its defeat 
undermines our democracy and its constitution. 

Surely our judicial system is not so narrow 
minded that it cannot apply itself more justifyingly 
than it has in this case. Surely our judges, lawyers, 
and learned political figures must have a better 
understanding of American ideals than Judge Mill- 
er's seems to indicate. There are, I am sure, more 
relevant laws which would apply to this case. Amer- 
ican ideals as expressed in the Constitution, the 
Declaration of Independence, and all other similar 
documents are not to be sacrificed for the sake of 
practicality. These ideals are supposed to be the 
gfuiding posts to the national structure which sup- 
posedly stands foremost throughout the world. If 
we are to have the other nations believe in our 
ideals, we must show them that we have complete 
faith in them. Mr. Miller's reason is a detriment 
to this object.

The Morgans Win Again! 

WHO are the Morgans? Are they a family hiding out 
in the wild Pelham hills on the order of the famous Hatfields 
and McCoys? Arc they a victorious little league baseball 
team in the Amherst area? Are they a winning act on the 
Arthur Godfrey talent scout show? 

No, the Morgans, for those of you who don't know, live 
right here on campus. Wo do not see them too often be- 
causo wo very seldom venture to wliere they live. Where's 
that, you ask? The university stables! 

Yes, the Moi>rans are our prize horses, and their latest 
coup was copi)ing the majority of blue ribbons at the Mor- 
gan events at the Kastciii Statrs Exposition.

Freshman Football Makes News . . . 

New Athletic Program 
State's ^'AU-Seholastic" 



Among the 45 candidates 
re-porting for the U of M Fresh- 
men football team are aonie of 
the toj> athletes in the state. 

In keepinj; with the school's 
new policy of encouraging athle- 
tics, eighteen top gridsters from 
the Bay State enrolled at the uni- 
versity. The squad list reads like 
a Who's Who on the All Scholas- 
tic Teams. 

At the ends, the Freshmen have 
John Champagne and Herb Wells. 
Champagne was an All Western 
Mass choice at Holyoke Catholic. 
Wells was an all scholastic pick 
at Medford High School l^efore he 
attended Cheshire Acadmey. 

Two other Cheshire Academy 
boys, Bob Foote, a former All 
Western Mass. tackle at North- 
ampton and tackle Dick Thornton 
of Milton, are on the large squad. 
Speaking of tackles, new fresh- 
men coach Noel Keebenacker also 
has some other talented lads. 
They include All Central Mass 
selection from Northbridge Jim 
Berkowiez; Ed Rumpus, a burly 
240 pounder, from Brockton, and 
Tom Laird of Boston Latin. 
There are some hefty men in the 
middle of the line headed by 200-

pound Armand Caravielto of Med- 
ford. A former All-Scholastic, 
Caraviello was on the All-Ameri- 
can All Prep-school team last 
fall. A couple of sizable running 
mates are 230 pound Wayne 
Morgan of Braintree and 210 
pound Jerry Cullen of Woburn. 

At Center, UMass has two 
prize performers. Van Caputo 
was on the All Maine Prep squad 
last year. Charley Theokas of 
Lowell was an All Scholastic 
selection and also a member of 
the greater Lowell All Stars. 

The UMass team can also 
boast of five really outstanding 
backs. Quarterback John Conway 
piloted the Lawrence All Stars 
earlier this year. Jim Hickman 
is a state-champion and was the 
highest scorer in the Boston 
Conference last fall. He is 
another All-Scholastic from 
Brighton. Halfback John Crowley 
was on the All District team at 
Boston Tech. 

Fullback Tom Delnickas was a 
two-sport All Western Massachu- 
setts choice while at Westfield 
High School where he played 
football and baseball. Halfback 
Joe Mahoney is the other 



Whitinsville gridster matriculat- 
ing at the university this fall. 
Bercowicz at tackle and Mahoney 
are the second and third former 
Northboro High standout athletes 
at Massachusetts. Sophomore Ar- 
mand Sahourin could win a start- 
ing spot on the varsity this fall. 

Coach Noel Reebenacker. in the 
first year ait the Massachusetts 
Freshmen helm, has just four 
weeks in which to whip his large 
squad into playiing shape for a 
short but rough four game grid- 
iror^ schedule. The Freshmen 
open with Worcester Academy at 
home on October 18th. They'll 
play Boston University on Octo- 
ber 24th. November 8th they play 
host to A. L C. and climax their 
schedule at New Hampshire on 
November 16th. -^ 

Reebenacker, a former Little 
AU-American Quarterback and 
the leading small college passer 
in the country in 1952, will be as- 
sisted by John Douglas and for- 
mer Captain Dave Ingrram who 
will handle the line, and by Dick 
Thompson of Auburn, an injured 
varsity senior who will work with 
the backfield.

Redmen Ready For AIC 



Two evenly matched teams col- 
lide next Saturday when Amer- 
ican International College in- 
vades Amherst to play the Uni- 
N^rsity of Massachusetts in the 
season's opener for both schools. 

Although it is early to start 
making predictions, the game 
could be a high scoring affair 
with the Aces featuring a speedy 
running game and the Redmen 
countering with a strong aerial 
attack. Both teams lost valuable 
men via the graduatjlon route 
but have a ntunber of experienced 
performers on hand to take up 
the slack. The probable starting 
line-ups are:

Two of the foremost powers in 
the Fraternity League have 
thrown the pre-seaqpn predicters 
right on their collective noses. 

Both Kappa Sig and SAE have 
already added a figure in the 
loss column while defending 
champs TFP squeaked out a win 
over Lambda Chi. 

After dropping their first con- 
test to an oily smooth Sig Ep 
X)utfit, KS rebounded to hand the 
always tough SAE an 18-13 de- 
feat last night. Gidge Morin, one 
of the fastest men on the intra- 
mural field and just as shifty, 
was a standout for the winners. 
SAE, as was clearly seen, has 
been immeasurably hurt by the 
loss of two-time unanimous All- 
Star choice Tony Scalzi and 
rugged Bill Desmond.

and the swift backfield, spear- 
headed by All-Star quarterback 
G^rge McCafferty and capable 
blocking back Slater Charlton, is 
still in good shape, the loss of 
experienced pass-catching ends 
slows up the attack. 

The Sunset Stripers can not 
be counted out so early, however, 
as the ever-capable "Old Fox" 
Murray, who has led the SAE's 
to many athletic heights, is 
bound to come up with an adjus- 
ted offense that will overcome 
the deficiences that now exist. 

Defending Chami>s TEP have

half of the squad.

President Mather Puts Forth 
Athletic Plan In Senate Letter 

Refuses Tax 
For Athletics 



MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23. 1957 



{Folloicing is a policy statement include,! in a 
letter nent to Senate President Pro-Tern Michael 
Donovan from University Pret^ident J. Paul Mather 
explaining the administratiim's policy regarding 
athletic funds. 

In addition to the printed letter below, a com- 
plete Athletic Department budget iva^ aho included 
showing the exact allotment of every dollnr that 
was collected through tMe Athletic Activities Tax. 

The Senate has also been invitn{ t<j appoint a 
professional accounting firm to audit the complete 
financial records. 

A final note included a clearance by th-e Eastern 
College Athletic Conference on the granting of aid 
to athletes solely on the basis of need. 

Editor's Note) 

For . . . further information . . . the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts unan- 
imously voted at a meeting on May 2, 1957, to dis- 
tribute the commissions from vending machines lo- 
cated in dormitories as follows: to the dormitory 
social fund (administered through the R.S.O. Com- 
mittee) 5% of the first ten thousand dollars of net 
profits from commissions, S^r of tSip npvt seven 
thousand of net profits from commissions, and 10% 
on all net profits over seventeen thousand dollars 
from commissions. 

The balance is to accrue to the University Ath- 
letic Council for purposes of grants and aid. 

The university administration recommends to 
the R.S.O. Committee that proceeds from such a 
commission distribution be distributed at the end 
of each semester to the doi-mitories on a per capita 
residence basis. Such procedure will insure that the 
entire donnitory community benefits from commis- 
sions witliout exaggeration because of t^e location 
of machines.

First Football Rally Of '57 
Season Draws Large 
Crowd To Alumni Field 



An estimated 1500 students assembled in the 
stands of Alumni Field Friday night to spur on the 
1957 grid squad and to take part in the "kickoff" 
football rally of the season. 

A speech by President Mather, in which he set 
forth his views on the athletic policy, keynoted the 
rally. 

Sponsored by Adelphia and Mortarboard, the rally 
was organized on Baker Hill by the Maroon Key 
and Scrolls, and the procession of freshmen was 
led to the girls' dormitories by the Cheerleaders and 
the Redmen Marching Band. 

At Alumni Field, President Mather spoke on the 
administration's policy after being introduced by 
Adelphian Raymond Grandchamp. 

Frederick "Tank" Burches, master of ceremonies, 
then topk the microphone to introduce this year's 
cheerleaders: Gail Totman '59 (acting head at the 
absence of Sheila Scott '58), Edward Bennett '58, 
Gene Berube '59, Shirley Bush '60, Francis Cullen 
'59, Elizabeth Grimm '59, Carolyn Hyde '60, Robert 
Myers '60, Elsie Papenfuss '59, Joyce Rollins '60, 
Ann Sherman '60, and Barbara Stowell '60. 

To add to the efforts of the cheerleading squad in 
acquainting and leading the students with this 
year's cheers, Redmen Bandmaster Joseph Cpntino 
stepped before the crowd and challenged it to "out- 
yell" his comparatively sm.all group of players. 

A contest ensued and managed to evoke the big- 
gest response from the audience all evening. 

After his introduction. Athletic Director Warren 
McGuirk made a short speech in which he thanked 
Contino for his spontaneous cheerleading. Head 
Coach Charlie O'Rourke then donned his traditional 
headdress and proceeded to present John Tiero '58, 
elected captain for the AIC game. 

Tiero introduced his 30 teammates; MC Purches 
then called forth "Pat M(^Groin", "Gorden Linen", 
and "Wally Seagap" a.s last minute reserves for a 
comical note. 

A bonfire and Rally Dance at thp Student I'nion 
ended the "kickoff" rallv.

A noted coach, sports official, 
and athlete died suddenly as he 
was refereeing the UMass-ATC 
game at Alumni Field Saturday 
afternoon. 

Charies S. Bridey, 51, of Cam- 
bridge fell to the ground as thn 
two teams resumed play on the 
UMass 35 yard line during the 
second period. 

University physician Dr. Ernest 
RadclifFe declared death due to 
a coronary attack. 

Last rites were administered 
by Rev. David Power of Am- 
herst who was called to the scene 
by campus police minutes after 
the official was carried off iho 
field. 

Ofllcials James F. Brennan, 
John J. Daley, and Henry D. 
Hormel, along with Dr. Radcliffe 
and trainer Victor Keedy, rushed 
to the side of the fallen man. 

Moments later a stretcher car- 
ried the stricken ofl^cial to the 
sidelines. 

Bridey played football and 
baseball at Boston College and 
later coached at Frankin, N.H., 
Natick, and Lexington. 

He was a president of the New 
England Football Officials Asso- 
ciation and of the Gridiron Club 
of Boston. He also served at one 
time as assistant-headmaster at 
the Cambridge Latin Srhooj. 

He is survives! by his wife, 
Gertrude, and five sisters.

Jerry Grimes '59 
Yes, I feel tliat the selections 
should be made primarily in the

this year are not varied enough

No, it might be ni<T if we nil had

job. I, personally, am satisfied 
with the concerts fhat have been 
presented. 
Bob Jamieson '58 
Yes. I think that the selections 
should be left to the student 
body as a whole and not to the 
few people in the Conceit Asso-

Professor Coding Of 
Language Department 
Speaks On Lab Plan 



The language teacher will nev- 
er be replaced by electronic gad- 
gets, university professor Stow- 
ell C. Coding assured the Mod- 
em Language Association mem- 
bers recently at a University of 
Wisconsin language convention. 

On the contrary, the head of 
Ma.ssachusetts romance language 
department said, "The language 
laboratory will be an aid to more 
effective language teaching. Not 
only will the teacher still he in- 
dispensable, but he will have to 
work harder than ever." 

He went on to describe the 
planning and designing of a lang- 
uage laboratory which will be 
part nf a new liberal arts class- 
room, scheduled for construction 
this fall. 

The three-year program of re- 
search and experimentation, sub- 
sidized by the Carnegie Corpor- 
ation is now in its second year. 
Coding explained. The planning 
represents a development of the 
language lalmratory program, in 
operation at the university for 
nearly thirty years. 

In reference to the university's 
proj(.<-t..d enrollment of 10.000 
stutlents by lOfi.'S, Coding said 
that the laboratory is planne<l 
to arc.ininin.l.it,. 2,500 students 
a week. "Wie 85- place lab will 
include two-way listening and re- 
i-iiding devices. The studtnt 



hear.s tlio language on a tape, 
then his own voice repeating the 
native language sound. Film 
slides, radio, and television will 
aI.so be used. 

Year of Experimentation 

The basic technique Ls now 
under study by the university 
language .staff in a 20-year ex- 
perimental lab. This year, the 
faculty will devise a variety of 
lesson and study techniques to 
<ic.f.-!nHii.< the method in which 
tape recording equipment may be 
used most effectively. 

The relationship of the lab to 
the elassixwrn is al.so under study 
at the university. Coding present- 
ed the two prevailing .schools of 
thought: first, all teaching should 
be done in the classroom, with the 
Iabor.at<iry being resen-ed for 
drill; second, that material should 
first be presented in the lab, then 
analyzed and elal>orated upon in 
class. 

"We are m.aking no attempt to 
force one group into the other's 
mould. I am happy to note that 
both groups consider the lab 
an aid and not an end," Coding 
said. 

At the end of experimentation, 
approximately two or three 
years from now. the uniN'ersity 
is definitely planning a series of 
conferences in which it will .nhara 
with other colleges the results 
of this unique project.

THE MASSACHrSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 23. 1957 



®lj^ MaBBacljuaettB Qlnlkgian 

FRESHMEN CANT 
KEEP EYES OPEN 

EDITOR'S NOTE: For all those pros- 
pectirc }nembers of the Fourth Estate who 
would like to write editorials and/or feature 
stories for this "dish-rag", there will be a 
special training cla^s meeting every Monday 
evening at 6 p.m. in our headquarters ov the 
second floor of the ''be-columned pool hall," 
starting today, Sept. 23. (Admission free). 
Before you commit yourselves, we would like 
you to know the mottoes of the COLLEG- 
IAN. They are, in order of their importance, 
"A Free and Responsible Press," "Acuracy, 
Acuracy, Acuracy" (we kid you not), and 
''All the News That Fits, We Print" (with 
apologies to the New York TIMES.) See you 
then. 



This is the problem. 

The picture featured in the next column 
of Freshman Diana Bates complete with 
magnifying glass is admittedly a spoof. But 
the problem behind the spoofing is both very 
real and very serious. The problem is, simp- 
ly stated, that the fi-eshmen are made to 
cany too large a load in their first few weeks 
on campus. 

Strangely enough the load is not aca- 
demic. It is otherwise, quite. We have ex- 
pressed these sentiments before on this page, 
but perhaps this problem of the harassed 
freshman is serious enough to warrant fur- 
ther comment. 

^ Compulsory Flag-Waving 

It has already been described how the 
freshmen, particularly the women, are 
herded into flag waving, bowing to Maroon 
Keys, sing rehearsals, and later the sings 
themselves — not only in the orientation pro- 
gram before the ofl^cial opening of school, 
but also after the beginning of classes. This 
flag-waving-type introduction to the univer- 
sity is unfortunate enough before classes be- 
gin, but the continuance of said introduction 
into the school year is just plain awful. 

Anr^ what is worse, this flag-waving is 
compulsory. 

Sing, Study, or Dabble 

It is no wonder that many freshmen are 
confused. Some factions in this new and 
strange community expect them to sing loud- 
er, and some expect them to study. One of 
three things results. Some freshmen do 
nothing but sing throughout their college 
life, some do nothing but study, and the ma- 
.iority end up dabbling in both. Perhaps this 
is inevitable. But maybe the introduction 
they receive to this campus has something to 
do with these unfortunate percentages. 

"Adjustment" vs. Individuality 

How wonderful it would be if freshmen 
were induced to think, to express individual- 
ity, to strike out on their own, when they 
first come to campus. There is enough in the 
college environment to further follow-the- 
crowdism. The furtherance of individuality 
will not turn us into mis-fits— but it might 
help us to become students.

With the hectic schedule imposed on us freshmen, how else can 
I keep my eyes open?" asks Diana Bates, class of '61. 



Trigger Burke Is Gunning 
For Most Impossible Goal 

Hard-Working Basketball Star Invited To 
Celtics' Rookie Camp; Former UMass Star 
Has Chance To Attain Life's Ambition 

by JACK CHEVALIER 

A sa wed-off little guy who 
sets impossible goals for 
himself and then attains 
them through hard work and 
self-confidence will "shoot 
the works" this year. He's 
George "Trigger" Burke, 
former University of Massa- 
chusetts basketball star, who 
is one of the nine rookies in- 
vited by the Boston Celtics 
to their pre-season training 
camp at Northeastern Uni- 
versity.

at the newspaper, the husky 

court jester sounded as determined as ever: 

"Now all I have to do is prove I'm good enough to stay 
for the National Basketball Association season. If I don't, 
well at least I have achieved my life's ambition." 

Known as the journeyman of basketball at UMass, 
Trigger arrived in 1953 after a year each at Maine and 
Coast Guard Universities. He sat out a year of ineligibility 
and then started to pump the points for Coach Curran's 
Redmen. 

In just two years of competition, Burke became the 
school's second highest scorer in history with over 800 var- 
sity points. Jack Foley has passed him, so he now stands 
third just behind Bill Prevey. 

The Quincy native stands a scant six feet, and this 
will be his biggest handicap in the Celtic camp. His shoot- 
ing eye will match any of the rookies' and his passing will 
probably be the best. 

Another Andy Philip, maybe? Coach Red Auerbach 
of the Celts could certiiinly use one. 

THREE LAW SCHOOLS 

Since graduation from UMass Trigger has put in a 
semester of law school at Boston Colege. another term of 
law sch(X)l (nights) at the University of Louisville (at 
which he made Dean's List), and six months in the regular 
army. While at BC. Burke was high scorer for the semi- 
pro Lowell All-Stars. However, in February Uncle Sam 
called and intenuplc.l both law school and the regular bas- 
ketball season. But even this stroke of luck did not daunt 
the indefatigable Ti'lgger, as he managed to put his eight 
hours in at Fort Knox every day and commute thirty miles 
to law schwl in I^ouisville four nights a week. And just for 
summer fun. lie has studied law at Georgetown (not named 
aftvr him. i)y the way) Unix.rsity in Washington, D.C. He 
still is a college gypsy with "Don't Fence Me In" as his 
theme song. 

(Continin (I at fnp ,,) u< xf ( nlinnn) 



Trigger ... 

He is attending BC law school during the 
day while the Celtic tryout camp is in session 
at night. 

This will be his biggest case: George 
Burke vs. Eight Other Rookies trying to 
make a World Championship basketball 
team. Coach Auerbach just won't find a guy 
with any more energy than Trigger Burke. 
And Western Massachusetts fans are roolmg 
for this spunky, outspoken guy to reach that 
biggest, and most impossible goal. 

Other Celtic rookies to report Sept. 15 
include: Sad Sam Jones from North Caro- 
lina College; Maurice King, University of 
Kansas; Jim Ashmore, Mississippi State; 
Chuck Schamm, Western Ilinois; Buzzie 
Davis, Marietta; Dan Swartz, Morehead

1957 Debut Marred By Death INTRAMURALS

The first of the weekly St. Re 
gin Awards goes to Halfback 
Gerry Walls, for his spectacular 
57 yard punt retura, which

Of Referee Charlie Bridev 

by TED KAYMOXD 

AIC reversed the customary procedure and grabbed 
their first Redman scalp as Bob Brennan scooted for two 
TD's and passed for another in the first half to roll up a 
19-7 victory over UMass yesterday at Alumni Field. 

Hi (Jinan started the fireworks — 

in the fir.-t period when he picked 
off a Billy Maxwell aerial in- 
tended for John O'Keefe and 
lufjTjrt'ii the pigskin duwn to the 
UMass ten yard strii)e. Thrte

Earlv in 



til, 



si'C'inu I'tTiDil, 
Brennan again threw the hooks 
into the Redmen when he passed 
to Bob Mercik from (> yaids out 
for the second AIC score. Kady 
again missed tlie point after try 
and the Redmen were deeper in 
the hole on the short end of a 
12-0 count. 

Tragedy struck midway 
through the second period wlien 
Referee Charlie Bridey of Cam- 
bridge, a teacher in the Boston 
school system, suddenly collapsed 
and died of a coronary heart at- 
tack on the field. Bridey was a 
last minute replacement for 
Leroy Kelley, who sustained an 
injury and was unable to offici- 
ate. Henry Hormel took over as 
referee for the remainder of the 
contest. 

In the waning minutes of the 
first half, Brennan added the 
couj) de ixiacc when he took in an 
aerial from Bill Quigley and gal- 
loped 42 yards for the third AIC 
tally. Brennan also added the ex- 
tra point to finisli up the scoring 
for the Aces. 

The Redmen foug-ht b:!ck in the 
thii'il i»ej-i(,il as t'l,, y put on a 
sustained di-ivp that took them

The UMass fans then got their 
only chance of the afternoon to 
cut loose with ^ome cheers as 
Gerry Walls gathered in the kick 
on his own 43 yard line, headed 



fi»r the near sideline where he 
was apparently trapped, reversed 
his field, and took off on a 57-yard 

jaunt to i»aydirt. Bill Goodwin

Rooftop Ray-vings 

The Redmen showed serious 
cleieiLsi\e shnrtfomings through- 
out the first half, but for the sec- 
ond half of the contest they were 
playing much better than their 
rivals. 

This reporter would venture to 
say that it was probably one of 
the worst afternoons of Billy 
Maxwell's career. The talented 
junior, who is one of the better 
passers over the past two years, 
couldn't find a single target all 
afternoon and had three of his 
aLlempts intercepted. 

Buzz Richardson stood out well 
yesterday and showed that he is 
liable to more than fill the shoes 
of Roger Barous. Barous was 
pei haps more talented in a defen- 
sive role, but Buzz has added the 
powerhouse plunging that the 
UMass team lacked with the 
lighter Earous. Buzz is not lack- 
ing much in his defensive role 
either as several AIC backs found 
wher t'-;, .. .111 into him at full 
steai^ ,. iiii Jivit wiily wei-e stoppe<i 
but were Iwunced hack. 

An incidental sidelight on the 
unfortunate demise of Referee 
Charlie Bridey is that a tribute 
to him is being arranu^t-d for the 
BU game. The Cambridge man 
was one of the most famous and

THE MASSACHISETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1957 



All Open Letter 
To You . . . 

An Open Letter to You . . . 

The Collegian has a pmblem 
that only you can help solve . . . 

The university has grown to 
such a large complex community 
that your newspaper can not 
possibly proNide good news cov- 
erage unless you help. The best 
way to help the Collegian and 
yourselves is to let the Collegian 
know what is happjening in your 
house, club, group or organiza- 
tion. Anj^hing that you do or 
your friends do that you think 
is news please pass along to your 
paper. 

The best possible way to cover 
the Greeks of course would be 
to assign a reporter to check 
each house each week; but, short- 
age of time and personnel pro- 
hibit this. Therefore the Colleg- 
Um must count on the Greeks to 
act as their outi reporting staff. 

In the same way this applies 
to the many assorted clubs on the 
campus. Please let us know what 
you are doing. Remember names 
make the news . . . The more 
names the greater the interest. 

The faculty and staff are asked 
to forward all news stories and 
events to the press also; but 
please route your information 
through the University News 
Service. All the information that 
tlhe University Editor receives 
concerning the doings of the 
staff and faculty will be forward- 
ed by her to the Collegian. Con- 
versely the Collegian will keep 
the News Ser\ice informed on 
stiiflpnt happenings. 

Thp best procedure to follow 
in reporting news to your cam- 
pus press is in writing. This is 
the safest and surest way to in- 
sure correct coverage. News 
items should be forwarded to the 
Collegian, Student Union, as far 
ahead of time as possible or as 
soon after an event has occurred 
as is feasible. Keep in mind that 
Cdlleginn deadlines are Tuesday 
and Thursday and Saturday 
noon for the Wednesday, Friday 
and Monday issues respectively. 

Remember that news can not 
be printed until it is known. 
COMMUNICATION IS THE 
LIFE BLOOD OF AN ORGAN- 
IZATION. 

Thanks, Collegian Editoi's 



President Mather WMUA Program Schedule 



(Continued from page 1) 

Under my administration the 
administration of athletic policy 
for the university, as approved 
by the Board of Trustees, will be 
maintained in the Athletic Coun- 
cil under present procedures. 
Operating or policy decisions will 
be made by the University AtSi- 
letic Council, appi-oved by the 
President of the University, and 
recommended to the Board of 
Trustees of the university. 

Specifically this means that de- 
cisions such as whether the ath- 
letic staff on recruiting, or scout- 
ing, or speaking, or news sei-vice 
activities travels in a Volkswag- 
on or a Ford Station Wagon — 
such decisions will continue to be 
made by the administration — 
not the Student Senate or any 
member thereof. 

It may be of some interest to 
note at this point that savings 
already showing from the pur- 
c'hase of the present vehicle indi- 
cate that instead of the former 
inefficient mileage payments 
made to individuals, the actual 
savings will amortize the cost 
of the vehicle in less than a year 
and a half. 

As I irtend to point out to the 
student body at the afhletic rally 
tonight what is fundamentally 
involved in all of this discussion 
in my opinion is whether or not 
the University of Massachusetts 
will continue to participate in 
intei collegiate sports of any kind 
in the future. This administra- 
tion will not support intercolleg- 
iate at^iletics in face of our cur- 
rent instructional needs out of 
State or tax funds beyond the 
present funds that are contribut- 
ed through maintenance and the 
payment of the salaries of coach- 
es who are engaged in intra- 
murals as well as intercollegiate 
athletic activities. In many stxitcs 
coaches' salaries are paid from 
fhe student athletic fee, and if 
It is the desire of the students to 
so raise the athletic fee as to pay 
coaches' salaries as wx-ll as estab- 
lish grants and aid as an ex- 
treme alternative, concessions 
can be eliminated.

Elmer Brooks '58 
Yes. There is not enough var- 
iety in the present selections. I 
feel that this year's program is 
better than it has been in the 
I>ast, but it still could use some 



improvement. If the selections 
were in the students' hands, by 
way of a questionnaire, then 
more people would take an in- 
terest in the concerts, because 
they themselves had voiced the 
opinion that tliey wanted these 
groups.

Senior Dies 
In Accident 

Martin J. Hamilton, a 
senior at the university, was 
killed in a three-car collision 
Monday evening in North- 
ampton. 

Hamilton succumbed at ap- 
proximately 8 p.m. to lacer- 
ations of the brain, scalp and 
face, suffered when he was 
thrown from the car in 
which he was a passenger. 

Joseph Marrino, operator 
of the vehicle and also a 
senior at the university, was 

slightly injured. This morn- 

ing the Administrator's Office of the Cooley Dickinson Hos- 
pital reported that Marrino suffered no fractures. Marrino 
was only bruised and shaken, the hospital reported; and 
he was released late yesterday afternoon. 

Hamilton was a resident of Adams, Mass., the son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph R. Hamilton of 34 Park St. At the 
university he was active in the Collegian as an editorial as- 
sociate and a past star reporter. He was a member of the 
campus Press Club. An English and Journalism major, 
Hamilton was to have graduated in June. 

Marrino is a resident of Worcester, Mass., and was 
Hamilton's college roommate. They lived at the home of 
Mitchell Koldy of 35 Northampton Rd., Amherst.

Humanities Center 
Program Discussed 

by MARCIA KEITH 

Doctor Maxwell H. Goldberg, 
director of the local organization 
of Humanities Center, has just 
returned from a conference in 
Washington whose aim, Goldberg 
stated, "was to survey what is 
■being done and what further re- 
mains to be done to improve the 
relations between American 
higher education and business 
and industry." 

Goldberg also stated that "once 
the aim has been accomplished, 
the Center will try to provide 
for the means to carry out such 
improvements." 

The Humanities Center, start- 
ed on campus in 1951 and di- 
rected by Dr. Goldberg, is part 
of a Larger national organization 
"concerned with bringing about 
exchanges of information and 
ideas between representatives of

Collegian 
Needs You 

Urgent! There will be an im- 
portant meeting of the entire Col- 
legian news staff tonight at 7 
p.m. This includes all new re- 
porters. 

Freshman girls, restricted iby 
7 o'clock curfew, may sign up for 
Collegian reporting at 4 p.m. 
tomorrow. 

New writera are desperately 
needed. But due to a lack of 
response from students, it may 
become necessary for tflie Colleg- 
ian to relinquish its hopes of ex- 
pending into a daily and r«vert 
to a bi-weekly. Without reporters 
no newspaper can properly 
function as a medium of conv 
munication.

School Of Ed, 
Gets 2 Profs 

Two assistant professors have 
been added to the faculty of the 
School of Education at the uni- 
versity, President Mather re- 
cently announced. 

Dr. Vincent R. Rogers, former- 
ly an assistant professor in ed- 
ucation at Syracuse University, 
will tearfi elementary school cur- 
riculum. Dr. Elmer Lawson 
comes to the university from 
East Carolina College and will 
teach history of education. Both 
will also supervise practice 
teachers. 

Under a two-college coopera- 
tive program, Richard Gregg will 
teach Prussian at both the uni- 
versity and Amherst College 
this fall. X graduate of Harvard, 
Mr. Gregg is currently working 
toward his Ph.D. at Columbia. 



'Save Water' 
Urges White 

"Wishful thinking," was an 
official comment concerning the 
probability of suspending ojiera- 
tions at the university Imk-uuso 
of water shortage. 

The pennanent population of 
Amiherst is 8000. This figure is 
increased by 5500 when the stu- 
dents enter .both schools in the 
fall. 

University students have b(!en 
asked to conserve water because 
of the tremendous drain created 
when students return. 

Amherst is one of t^u- last 
towns to continue imposing re- 
strictions on the use of water. 
Most of the other communities 
have reanoved curbs set earlier 
this summer. 

The town draws upon reser- 
voirs in Pelham and one on the 
iborder of AnAerst and Shu tea- 
bury. 

John White, superintendent of 
the Water Department, said to- 
day that restrictions will remain 
in force indefinitely.

"RED" BLASKO 



WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 25. 1957 

1550 Cars 
On Campus 

Fords, Buicks, Chevrolets 
— take your choice — contin- 
ue to be registered day after 
day as campus police hasten 
to issue the last sticker be- 
fore parking tickets run out. 
The latest figure of cars 
registered has reached 1550, 
reports Chief of Campus Po- 
lice, Alexander Blasko. 

"Already ahead of last 
year's number, the figure 
will increase until those cars 
without stickers are regis- 

tered, probably some time 

next week," Blasko added. 

Meanwhile student cars are being tagged as fast as the 
campus police can patrol parking lots. Those students who 
have been unable to get stickers because of classes have 
had their violations cancelled. 

But campus police report too many students are driv- 
ing to classes and thus violating the basic driving law set 
up by the administration. 

"The administration is very firm about driving on cam- 
pus during class hours," said Blasko. "Students take ad- 
vantage of the fact that police cannot patrol lots at all times 
of the day."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25. 1957 



MARTY 

Monday night tragedy struck at the uni- 
versity. Mcrty Hamilton, a senior, was killed 
in an automobile accident. Marty was a 
pretty nice guy, always pleasant, always 
soft-spoken. We know because we worked 
with him on the paper. Working on a news- 
paper is pretty hectic sometimes, but we can 
never remember Marty getting upset about 
anything — always calm, and composed — un- 
assuming — ciuietly smoking his ever present 
pipe. You couldn't help but like Marty. He 
was that kind of a guy. On behalf of the 
paper, on behalf of the university, we would 
like to express our deepest sympathies. 



JOE COLLEGE 
GOES FORMAL 

The following was published in a recent 
edition of the daily campus newspaper at 
UConn: "The first dress and appearance 
requirement at UConn has been initiated by 
Harold Hewitt, dean of the School of Phar- 
macy. Beginning Sept. 23, all pharmacy 
students will be wearing a dress shirt, tie, 
sport jacket or professional coat, and must 
be clean shaven and well groomed for all 
classes. 

"In a letter to the student body the dean 
states; 'We believe that the time to develop 
those traits whicli promise success as a pro- 
fessional person is during your training 
period at the college . . . ' 

Just A Habit 

"Dean Hewitt, commenting on the re- 
quirements said, 'The casual Joe College 
dress is just a habit that the students ac- 
«quire. We are interested in cultivating the 
proper habits which the student will con- 
tinue to practice after he graduates. When 
a student has dressed and groomed profes- 
sionally for four years he will continue to 
do so after graduation.' 

• "Will the dress and appearance require- 
ments spread to other colleges and schools 
on campus? The dean says, 'We didn't do 
this because any other school was doing it or 
because we felt that any others will follow 
us . . . we'll lead the campus and if any of 
the others want to follow they'll be gladly 
welcomed to our folds.' 

"The School of Business leaves the ques- 
tion of dress and appearance up to the dis- 
cretion of the individual instructor; how- 
ever, they encourage coats and ties to class. 

Good Grief 

"Dr. Felix Blanc of the Connecticut 
Pharmacy Commission, commented: . . . 
'The student pharmacists are not truck driv- 
ers or ditch diggers and should not dress 
like them. A shirt, tie, and jacket gives 
them a clean, dignified look and helps them 
to build character.' " 

Good grief, say the UMiea. Might this 
happen to iis'uns? What will we do with all 
our crewnecks . . . and our beards? And 
what School would have the courage to ini- 
tiate this here? 

Who ever you are, we salute you!

not too convenient for everyone concerned, 
training sessions for the editorial staff will be 
conducted on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.

Pflanze Of History Dept. 
Returns To UM Campus 

by LORNA REGOLSKY 

Mr. Otto Pflanze began teaching history at the I'r.versity of 
Massachusetts five years ago. He is a tall man. over six feet, with a 
square face and a ruddy complexion. He wears horn-rimmed glasses 
and his crisp black hair is just beginning to turn grey. A relaxed cor- 
dial manner and a charming southern drawl (he's from Tennessee) 
leave little of the academician about him. But, like most educators, he 
is precise, avoids generalizations, and expects to be quoted accurately. 

Mr. Pflanze has just returned from a two-year leave of absence 
which he spent in Germany. He received a Fulbright grant and spent 
part of his time doing research for a political history of Bismarck, 
which is now in progress. 

Mr. Pflanze stayed first in Hamburg, a large metropolitan city 
in the north of Germany. The attitudes of city-dwellers all over the 
world are very similar, and the people of Hamburg think much like 
their counterparts in New York or Paris or London. 

With much trepidation, I asked Mr. Pflanze about the attitude 
of Germans towards Americans, and it was so nice to hear that they 
actually like us. The Germans are probably friendlier towards the 
Americans than any other European people. This is strange when 
you consider that we have an occupation force in Germany, and oc- 
cupation forces are rarely popular. However, our prestige has re- 
mained high in spite of a few unfortunate incidents; the results of 
excessive exuberance on the part of some American GIs. 

Mr. Pflanze thinks that the basic reason for this friendly atti- 
tude is that almost every German has at least one relative in the 
United States. Instead of resenting our help they are grateful for 
it and have come to regard us as a source of protection. They haven't 
forgotten the Marshall Plan and they feel we are bearing part of 
the burden of their security. 

A phase of German life we have all heard about is the famous 
beer gardens. I was pleased to learn that this wonderful institution 
still exists. About once a week a group of men will get together 
around a stammtisch (table). There, in an atmosphere redolent with 
tobacco smoke, excellent wine, and beer, the f^tammtisch club will 
sit far into the night smoking and drinking and, most of all, talking. 
For the Germans, far less addicted to television and radio than we 
are, have not forgotten the art of conversation, and when a man 
visits the house of a friend he will never forget to bring his hostess 
a bouquet of flowers — another institution. 

The second district Mr. Pflanze visited was Freiburg, a university 
town in the south of Germany near the Rhine Valley, a famous wine- 
growing area. German students take their opportunities more serious- 
ly than we do. For one thing, they don't start college until what 
would be for us the junior year. They spend two years longer in 
their gymnasium, which corrseponds to our high school, except that 
the training ism ore intensive. While they attend the gymnasium 
they are subject to as many rules and restrictions as we are subject 
to in college, but when they leave for higher studies they are treated 
as adults with all the freedom and the responsibility which that in- 
curs. 



Machmer Mirror 

(Time: Around 8:50 a.m. Place: Front steps of Machmer) 

. . . Brisk wind. Slaps furiously. Must be traveling a good 25 miles 
per hour. Oh, oh, over the speed limit. Code Three. Better summon 
"Red" Blasco . . . And as the wind twists through the Autumn foliage, 
the leaves don't merely idle down. They literally plummet. Must be 
in a hurry to go to ... Hurry! Hurry! Everyone's hustling. The 
front steps are rapidly becoming over-populated. And the bell hasn't 
even rung! . . . The crowd cowers as gusts of wind sweep around 
Machmer, knifing them. Maybe North College should be dug up out 
of its catacomb again. After all, it did provide a good wind-breaker. 
. . . Long, tall, history prof with grasshopper legs leaps the steps. 
His face is pinched red, all wrinkled like a shriveled-up apple. Rushes 
inside. Guess he doesn't apreciate the biting wind. Short, pudgy stu- 
dents probably would have a rough go of it, trying to make it to 
class before him . . . And more and more, the front steps fill up. Stu- 
dents elbow one another, step on each other's toes. But nobody goes 
inside. Guess he doesn't appreciate the biting wind. Short, pudgy stu- 
. . . The migration of flies from the Student Union "Hatch" across 
the street doesn't, though. They're still in a hurry, keep buzzing 
around, flirting with girls' pony tails. Evidently the flies enjoy the 
company of students, particularly the fairer sex, as they congregate 
on the front steps of Machmer . . . Bell still hasn't sounded off yet. 
Everybody's trying to talk at once. Like the previous burst of speed 
to reach these steps, (their speech is also hurried, clipped, almost stac- 
cato-like ... A few, the silent, just look around. Some watch the trees 
bowing before the frenzied wind. Others look up, pointing . . . Black 
cloud outraces a white cloud in the .oky. Could be bearing storm 
warnings. Hear tho rumbling? Thunder, maybe . . . Bell finally sounds 
off, breaks up the congregation with its tinny tone. Meanwhile rumbl- 
ing increases. That wasn't thunder! Sounds more like a B-52 blast- 
ing off. Or an earthquake . . . It's neither. Doors slam, raucous voices 
split the air. And suddenly, like magic, upon the steps trample those 
(Canthiunl in fhr vrxt. column) 



Machmer Mirror . . . 

so-called sophisticates from the domain of intellect- 
ualism inside. Class is over . . . But the respite is all 
too brief. Hurry! The race with the clock has really 
begun now. Can't be late for next class . . . Snap, 
crackle, pop! Some engineering student loses his 
slide rule. It shatters under the crunch of feet. 
These wisdom wands are becoming slippery sticks 
more and more every day . . . And at long last the 
crowd of students taper off. There are just a few 
bored stragglers left now. They grin at a couple 
of panicky Bermuda beauties, frosh presumably, 
prancing across the campus toward Machmer . . . 
Bits of dialogue from the frosh: "This is the second 
time I've been late. And he told us at our first 
class, he'd knock off points for being tardy." "I 
don't know. It seems hopeless. I come early, and 
he comes late. I come late, and he's early." . . . And 
from those old salts that lag: "Aw, what's the 
diff? A minute late or five minutes late. It's all 
the same. I get more from the books anyway." 
(Hmmm, that's debatable). 

But you know, fellow-sufferers, whether the faces 
in the crowd are unfamiliar to you or not is of little 
consequence. If there's a moral here, it merely boils 
down to a little more common courtesy. How about 
it ? And for you innocent frosh, take a tip from one 
who was once upon a time a chronic (no, not an 
alkie) late-comer himself, punctuality is simply the 
art of arriving at classes in time to wait. — Soc.

StuU Salute 

Gentlemen: 

One usually finds that letters are written to the 
editor in order to register complaints, but I feel 
that credit should be given where credit is due. The 
.staff at the Student Union are to be congfratulated 
for the excellent job that they are now doing in 
the "Hatch" in serving the students and staff dur- 
ing the lunch hour. The service is quick and much 
thought has been given to the system which is 
now used.

More Vending Machines 

To the editor of the Collegian: 

With controversy raging on campus over the 
vending machine issue it seems as if we might 
ask ourselves the following questions. 

First, a basic question. What percentage of the 
profits does the Athletic Council receive from the 
vending machines? I think many of the students 
would be startled if they knew. Each dormitory 
is responsible for returning to the students the 
money that is lost so frequently in the machines. 
The dormitory is also indirectly responsible for the 
maintenance of the machines in that they pay ser- 
vice charges on the machines wherf vandalism oc- 
curs. Within the last couple of years, Greenough 
Dormitory's coke machine had a salt solution poured 
into it. I believe two other dorms had the same 
thing happen to their machines that same night. 
This would suggest that outsiders might have been 
guilty of these acts, yet Greenough had to pay $15 
to service the machine. Why didn't the Athletic 
Council share in this burden? The representatives 
of Greenough tried to get this point across to re- 
sponsible people, but to no avail. It seems to me 
that dormitories are giving much and receiving 
little in return. 

Secondly, students are indignant because of the 
rising prices of washing machines, etc. A refer- 
ence was made in the Collegian about a week ago 
about "struggling students". Let's be honest with 
ourselves. There is no question that some students 
find this rise in prices burdensome. On the other 
hand, look around you and see how many of the 
"struggling students" own late model automobiles. 
These students are satisfied with nothing short of 
luxury. Aren't many of us being hypocritical in 
considoring ourselves under undue financial bur- 
dens? 

I would be intorr.<;fo(l in learning whether or 
not the above criticisms arc valid in tho eyes of 
my fellow students. They seem to me to l>e worth 
our serious and honest consideration. 

Respectfully, 

Bert Hubley, Jr. '68

SIDELIGHTS ON SPORTS 



Calling All Greeks 



This has been a busy week in 
the world of sports thus far. 
The Braves made Milwaukee fam- 
ous copping the National League 
pennant; the Yankees took the 
pennant again; and Carmen Basil- 
ic took the middleweight crown 
from Sugar Ray Robinson. Basil- 
io is now the holder of two world 
<;rowns; welterweight and mid- 
dleweight. 

An informed source notes that 
many people will be sorry to 
learn that vending machines are 
not the only economic sector to 
be hit by inflation, for the price 
of Tom Bishko's eggs have also 
gone up ten cents a dozen.

RILEY ON SIDELINES 

Starting tackle Dick Riley, who 
suffered a sprained ankle last 
Saturday against AIC, will not 
see action against Boston Uni- 
versity this coming Saturday eve- 
ning at 5:30 p.m. 

There is a good chance that, 

he'll be ready for the UConn 

game on Oct. 12. This serious 

blftw to the Redmen leaves them 

v»-lth anly three varsity tackles 

for the BU game.

STUDIES GET BEDROSIAN 

Al Bedrosian, junior from Som- 
erville has had to drop from his 
line position for the Redmen due 
to an extremely tough engineer- 
ing course. The afternoon labs 
which he must attend have kept 
him from practices and he's had 
to withdraw from the team. 

UMass will have 29 men in uni- 
form come Saturday.

O'ROURKE HAS 2 PROSPECTS 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke got 
some brighter news when two 
juniors went out for the football 
team early this week. 

"They won't be ready for the 
BU game but they love football 
and that will get them into the 
lineup soon," said O'Rourke. 

Charlie was speaking about 
Dick Waldron and "Davy" Crock- 



Compiled and Edited by 
JOEL WOLFSON 

ett. Both boys weigh about 180 
pounds and have had previous 
e.xperience. Waldron is expected 
to be used in the center slot, 
while Crockett will be at half- 
back when he is ready to start. 

"Both boys like rough football 
and will help us," O'Rourke con- 
cluded.

MONTOSL 'INSURANCE MAN' 

Husky John Montosi from 
Braintret' may be called upon to 
play hnth center and tackle when 
Iho Ki-tlmen tackle BU Saturday 
night in Boston. Monty is fast 
en,ough and has the reflexes 
^o^f'.^^■al•y to do the linebacking 
required of a contor, and, at the 
same time, he is simnt? enough 
ami has the weight to stonewall 
a line at tackle. 

Montosi become an insurance 
man on the first day of pre-sea- 
son drills. Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke, who has beciome a ma- 
ster juggler of talent because of 
an exceptionally small line, 
moved the blond junior from 
tackle to center. Thi.s move wa'' 
to provide insurance in case any- 
thing happened to regular center 
.lohn Tern, who was the only 
pivot man on the squad. 

Last Saturday's injury to start- 
ing tackle Dick Riley made Ihe 
situation more complex. 

Montosi received orders that he 
would have to play tackle again 
in addition to his regular duties 
as center. 

Montosi is 5'11" and weighs 
210 i>ounds. He won letters in 
four different sports in Braintree 
High and captained both the gri- 
diron and hoop squads.

Fraternity Notes 



SIG EP OVER THETA CHI- 
Mai Rice's outstanding catch of 
a pass from Bob Mann pnovided 
the only score of the game as Sig 
Ep won over Theta Chi, 6-0. Sig 
Ep's second victory of the season 
was hard-earned as the line play 
of Theta Chi's Baily and Carpen- 
ter prevented the ground game of 
the winners fnom the picking up 
any larger gains. 

The scoreless second half pro- 
vided some thrilling moments 
with an outstanding contribution 
made by Art Doherty. Great 
h'->cking by Pete TTomano proved 
>ui important faci- r in the Sig 
Ep win. 



KAPPA SIG 24-TEP 19- After 
losing their first game, Kappa 
Sig came back to knock off two 
of the top contenders in the 
inter-fraternity league. KS beat 
talent loaded SAE, 18-13, last 
week. IV^onday night KS combined 
rupjrod dpft'nsivo play with a fine 



l)assing attack to subdue defend- 
ing champs. TEP, 24-13. Ed Gil- 
body did the chucking for KS and 
the target for his long aerials 
was Gig Morin, Morin, a basket- 
ball and lacrosse star grabbed 
two passes for touchdowns. Mike 
Dube caught a pass for the decid- 
ing Ipuchdown in the closing 
minutes. 

KS drew first blood when Gil- 
bmly intercepted one of Skippy 
Klman's passes and meed 30 
yards into the end zone. TEP 
ca/me back quickly to score, but 
KS managed one more touchdown 
t<o m'ake the score 12-6 at half- 
time. TEP went ahead in the sec- 
ond half and held their lead until 
the closing minutes when KS 
again p+arted clicking. 

Gilbody passed to Dube for the 
deciding touchdown with less than 
a minute left of playing time 

Skip Duprey, John Kominski, 
and Bob Norman played solid 
noles for KS.

INTRAMURALS 

Another schedule change for 
the remainder of the week head- 
lines today's intramural notes. 

The TEP-PSK contest sche- 
duled for tonight has been post- 
poned and will be played at a 
future date to be announced. Also 
the TEP-SAE and AEPI-AGR 
games slated for tomorrow have 
been postponed and will be re- 
scheduled later. 

Monday night the TEP jugger- 
naut was finally stopped as KS 
handed them their first loss since 
1955. This throws the Fraternity 
League into chaos, leaving the 
three top powers with a loss 
apiece. SPE is still undefeated, 
but the general consensus is that 
their type of aittack, based pri- 
marily on precise blocking to al- 
low their speedy backs to run 
with the ball, will soon be solved. 
When they finally have to depend 
to a greater extent on their pas- 
sing attack, which ranks lower 
than that of TEP, SAE, or KS, 
they will be stopped. 

The way the situation is shap- 
ing up now, it looks like the four 
above named teams will be fight- 
ing it out for the league title. 

Some of the Frosh dorm teams 
looked impressive in their first 
outings Monday and Tuesday. Al- 
thougti lacking in definite pattern 
plays, they are loaded with some 
good material. They may provide 
some stiff competition for the 
Fraternity champs in the playoffs 
after developing .some plays over 
the season. Although they lack 
the polish of the well-drilled fna- 
temity clubs, the class of players 
themselves is right up there with 
the be.st.

FOOTBALL THROUGH THE AGES 

The football fro!izy is upon us. Hut let us in the midst 
of tlii- paiHlcMKiiiuniealltinic. let u- pause for a moment 
of ti,"ii(,nil retleetion. \\ liat is this great Aniericau game 
called fuotl'iiir.' \\'hat is its history? Its origins? 




id a^ pa^epr^ Wo?rM oj ImQiLil QflecM 



I'irst of all, to call football au American game i.s some- 
\vliat mi.»leadiiig. True, the game io now played almost 
exclusively in America, but it comes to us from a land 
far away and a civilization long dead. 

Footliall was first played in ancient Rome. Introduced 
by .lulius Caesar, it became one of the most popular 
Hoinan sports by the time of Nero's reign. The eminent 
historian, Sigafoos, reports a crowd of MMCLDDW III 
people at the Colosseum one Saturday afternoon to see 
the Christians play the Lions. 

With the decline of the Roman empire, football fell 
into disu.^e. The barbaric Huns and \'isigoths preferred 
canasta. Not imtil the fifteenth century A. D. did foot- 
ball emerge from its twilight and rise to its rightful place 
in the firmament of European sports. 

Which l)rings us to September 29, 1442, a date dear to 
the hearts of all football fans. It was on tliis date, accord- 
ing to the eminent historian Sigafoos, that a si.xteen-year- 
old lad named Christopher Columbus tried out for the 
football team at (ienoa Tech. He failed to n^ake the team 
because he was too light. (He weighed at the time only 
twelve pounds.) 

And why, you a.sk, is this date — Septeml)er 29, 1442 — 
so dear to the hearts of all footliall fans? Because young 
Columbus was so heartbroken at not making the team 
that he ran away to sea. And if that hadn't happened, 
he never would have discovereil America. And if Columbus 
hadn't discovered America, the world would never have 
di.scovered tobacco. And if the world hadn't discovered 
tobacco, football fans never would have discovered 
Marll>oro— which, as every fan knows, is the perfect com- 
panion to football. And why shouldn't it l>e? Look what 
Marlboro's got . . . Filter . . . Flavor . . . Flip-top Box . . . 
You can't buy a better smoke. You can't smoke a better 
buy. 

The end of football in Europe came with the notorious 
"Black Sox Scandal" of 1587, in which Ed Machiavelli, 
one of the Tisa mob, paid off the University of Heidelberg 
Sabres to throw the championship game to the Chartres 
A. and M. Gophers. It was a mortal blow to football on 
the continent. 

But the game took hold in the American colonies and 
thrived as it had never thrived before. Which brings us 
to another date that remains evergreen in the hearts of 
football lovers: r)eceml)er 16, 1773. 

On that date a British packet loaded with tea sailed 
into Boston harbor. The colonies had long been smarting 
under the English king's tax on tea. "Taxation without 
representation," they callrd it. and feelings ran high. 

When on December 10. 1773. \V. Mritish slii]i docked 
at liostoii, a semi-pro football team called the Noiif>;ireil 
Tigers, coaclHMl by S.-muiel (Swiffy) Adntn-, \\;i- scrim- 
maging near the harbor. "Come, lail--." ( ritd Suitt\ , xc- 
ing the ship, "bet's dump tlie tea in the ocean'"

The tirst meeting of the Nev.--

the University Dining Commons. 

Father Power, Newman Club 
Chaplain, spoke t'> the group on 
the need for religinn in these 
troubled times. 

Due to car trouble, Msgr. 
Lally, Editor of "The Pilot", the 
scheduled speaker, was unable to 
address the group. 

Ray Grandchamp '58, club pre- 
sident, opened the program by an- 
nouncing that the Newman Club 
is holding' it.s annual membei-ship 
drive. 

It was also announced that all 
those interested may find out 
further details by dropping in at 
Father Power's office on the 
second floor of the Student Union. 



Cars . . . (Contimwd from page 1) 

Those students with an orange "7" on their stickers are 
allowed to park in the cinder lot during legal times. 

"The lot, however, must first accommodate our com- 
muters," said Blasko. He furthermore stated that parking 
in front of the Student Union is restricted. 

All students who do not have their cars registered as 
yet, may do so by going to the Receiving Room, in Draper 
Annex. There is no charge to register your vehicle. 

It should be known to the students tb^t there are fines 
for receiving a parking ticket. The first fine is $1.00 and 
from then it is $5.00. On the third ticket your parking priv- 
ilege may be taken away.

CD Plans 
Announced 
By Hopkins 

Dean Hopkins announced that 
he plans to cope with CD. em- 
ergencies by having 10 men |)er 
dorm named as a liaison between 
the administration and CD. to 
aid in disasters similar to the 
Montague forest fiie. 

On TTiursday night, May 9, 
1057, more than HdO stu<lents 
answered Dean Hopkins' emer- 
gency call for volunteers to bat- 
tle a raging forest fire that had 
swept uncontrolled around the 
to-wni of Montague. 

Both the dormitories and fra- 
ternities respondc'l equally well 
to Dean Hopkins' u- (ipiul. 

Many of the voluntu re the

fully fought a picNJous overnight 
fire at Shutesbury. 



The Poll 
Bearer 

By Joe Tabak 

Recently four seats have been 
vacated in the student senate. 
It has been proposed that the 
class oflicers select the new sen- 
ators, instead of having a cam- 
pus-wide t'lection. What do you 
think <\f this proposal? 

Ed. Note: In Wednesday ni(/ht'fi

SHEILA McLAlGHLIN 

("LASS '59 

I think that the class should 
vote for the new senators. I don't 
feel that the opinion of tho cIks 
officers is enough. Democracy is 
being thwaited. The whole class 
.should ha^f a voiic in the selec- 
tion and not just four pr iplc. 

DAVE (I LLEN (LASS '58 

I think that the class oflficers 
.should aiiiK>int the new senators 
l>ecause it would take too much 
time and money to have an elec- 
tion. The class officers are our 
representatives so I don't feel 
that they're taking any rights 
away from the students. 

BARBARA THELIN CLASS '58 

Our imiversity government is 
patterned after our national sys- 
tem of democracy. The United 
States president would not fill 
any vacancies in the Senate by 
personal choice, neither should 
we waive our rights to an elec- 
tion. 

Al WILSON CLASS '59 

Why shouldn't they have an 
election? Sini .• the .Student Sen- 
ate is a representative organiza- 
tion of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, then the senators should 
be elected by those whom they 
represent. 

JOE ZBIKOWSK! CLASS '60 

I feel that if the students pick 
the new senators, they'll select 
on popularity alone. If the clas.s 
officers do Vhv selecting, they'll 
lie uKiro likely t-i look for abil- 
ity. I'eoj)|o (joTi't il.ri a new

thoro li.'id to be a sch (linn, I 
think that the .Student Senate

Student 
Hour Set 
By Provost 

An informal "Provost Hour" 
is the result of a desire recently 
expressed by Provost Shannon 
McCune to provide means of lei- 
surely communication between 
his ofTice and those of the student 
Iwdy or the faculty who would 
like to me-t w ith him informally. 

The "hour" .•should be a wel- 
come innovation because it will do 
away with any appointment-mak- 
ing which at ti.'ues becomes a 
time jugglinu' formality, McCune 
said. 

Piovost ]McCune will retuni to 
the university on October 1st 
from a trip to Japan where he 
conducted a tour of lectures be- 

universities and colleges. 

Stan Salwak, class of 43, who 
is assistant to the Provost, ex- 
pressed the suggestions of Mc- 
Cune concerning the projection 
of the idea for the Provost Hour. 

\ew office hours which will be- 
come effective upon the provost's 
return, feature Wednesday after- 
noon periods, 1-4, set aside ex- 
])r{.^s!y for students and faculty. 



MOVIE POSTPONED 

Because of a hroken projec- 
tion lamp, the reel of "All 
•Vbout Eve" was not shown 
last night as scheduled. The 
film will be shown, however, 
at 7 p.m. in the SU tonight. 



The Amherst College chapter of Theta Xi fraternity

The magazine's College Board 
Contest offers a chance to win 
one of the twenty Guest Editor- 
sJiips — a month on the staff of 
Ahuletnoiselle. Tihose who are ac- 
cepted on the Boax'd do two as- 
signments during the college

tures about life on their campus, 
to win cash prizes, and possibly 
to have their outstanding work 
submitted during the contest 
published. 

The top twenty Guest Editors 
will be brought to New York 
next June to help write, edit and 
illustrate the August COLLEGE 
is.sue. They will be paid a regu-

as 
Grand Lodge, suspended the 
house on in.structions from the 
national convention late this sum- 
mer. 

Now Alpha Theta Xi 

The Amherst chapter, which 
hopes to be reinstated, will oper- 
ate as a local known as Alpha 
Theta Xi. "We intend to operate 
a.-i a local fraternity and to in- 
itiate all of our pledges on alum- 
ni weekend, Oct. 25," .said Peter 
Parker of Shrewsbury, the frater- 
nity's undergraduate pro.sid.ut. 

"Although we regret the na- 
tional's decision we feel that we 
have abided by the principles of 
the college as well as those of 
the fraternity. Thus far we have 
made no decision regarding a re- 
(juest for the reinstatement since 
the matter really rests with the 
oflicers of the national fraternity. 

"We feel the house has always 
been an asset on the campus as 
well as within the Theta Xi or- 
ganization. We hope, of course, 
to be reinstateti and that the na- 
tional fraternity will come to see 
the matter in a different light." 
National .States Reasons 

In suspending the Amherst fra- 
ternity, the national officers cited 
several rea.sons. Among them 
were failure to follow fraternity 
ritual, lack of respect for nati«3nal 
oflicers and the assertion that 
Amherst Cn]|fjr,i ^vjj;; inho.'^pitable 
to national fraternities. 

In 194r» the Amherst trustees 
v^oted that each fraternity at Am- 
hi r.-;t College must be free to se- 
lect its members without limita- 
tions based upon race, color, or 
creed. 

Theta Xi is the second Amherst 
College fraternity to be sus- 
pended by its national this year. 
Phi Gamma Delta was involved in 
a similar case last spring. In 
adilition. three other .Amher.st fra- 
ternities have severed their na- 
tional connections since World 
War 11.

Aftermath 



O! say can you see 

By the dawn's early light 
"The Federal law and orders of a United 
States District Court cannot be flouted with 
impunity by any individual, or mob of ex- 
tremists ..." 

What so proudly we hailed 

At the twilight's last gleaming. 
"I will use the full power of the United 
States, including whatever force may be ne- 
cessary to prevent any obstruction of the 

law ..." 

And the rockets' red glare 
The bombs bursting in air — 
"It will be a sad day for this country . . . 
if school children can safely attend their 
classes only under the protection of armed 
guards . . ." 

Gave proof through the night 
That our flag was still there. 
"I repeat my expressed confidence that 
citizens . . . will not countenance violations 
of the law and order by extremists . . ." 
O ! say does that star spangled 
banner yet wave, 
"This is one nation with liberty and jus- 
tice for all ..." 

O'er the land of the free 
And the home of the brave. 
"Now, therefore, I, Dwight D. Eisenhow- 
er, President of the United States, under and 
by virtue of the authority vested in me by 
the Constitution ... do command all persons 
engaged in such obstruction of justice to 
cease and desist therefrom, and to disperse 
forthwith." 



Students Arise! 

There are approximately thirty-one play- 
ers on our varsity football team. The fact 
that there are only thirty-one players we can 
dismiss for the time being. The University 
of Massachusetts does have a football team. 
Last week we saw a team composed of a 
few varsity veterans stand up and fight 
against a team which was rated by sports- 
writers as a four touchdown favorite. With 
some breaks the Umies could have turned in 
a better performance, yet each one of us 
left the field with the feeling that each play- 
er had given his utmost in terms of guts. 

We as a student body are faced with a 
tough season. Yet we seem to forget that 
the team itself will carry the brunt of any 
disappointments which result from losses. At 
best we may end the season with a 4-4 rec- 
ord. There is very little that we can do now 
except give our full support to a team which 
is composed of fellow students, and incident- 
ally, great guys. 

They deserve the backing which any spir- 
ited student body provides for representa- 
tive groups engaged in competition, whether 
it be on the gridiron or behind the podium. 
To the team we would like to offer the 
words of Leahy: 

"When the going gets tough 
The tough get going." 
To the student body we can only say that 
it is easy to be a winner. The attitude which 
reflects our feelings during this season will 
demonstrate to everyone whether we really 
deserve a winning team. 

This weekend the team faces an over- 
poworing oppom-nt. Without doubt the team 
will be there . . . will we? S.R. 



by LOKNA REGOLSKY 
There are no retiular exams for (Jerman students, and a pro- 
fessor would never think of taking attendance. A student studies 
for a degree until he thinks he is ready to take an examination. He 
may continue studying as long as he lives if he can afford it. The 
emphasis is on learning. 

There are fewer college students in Germany than there are 
in the United .States because the qualifications are higher and quar- 
ters are limited. Students usually find rooms in the town and, until 
recently, there was no such thing as a college dormitory. I was in- 
trigued to learn that German students place much less emphasis 
on social life than we do. As a people they are more reserved and 
display little of that back-slapping heartiness which characterizes 
many Americans. Because they don't live in large groups they make 
fewer friends, or perhaps I should say acquaintances. Unless a Ger- 
man student knows another intimately, he will not call him by his 
first name. 

In the town itself there is much more intellectual activity. Col- 
leges are not as formally organized as they are in the United States, 
and the townspeople are free to attend lectures without having to go 
through any complicated rigamarole. Again, the emphasis is on learn- 
ing. 

The third area Mr. Pflanze visited was the fabled black forest 
in the Rhine Valley. He compared this lovely region to our own Berk- 
shires. It is a land of green meadows sharply edged with dark wood- 
lands. Great fir trees rise in the forests which are carefully tended 
by the peasants who inhabit the valley. There are few large farms, 
the main industries being dairv farming and forestry. 

Like Andalusia in Spain, the Black Forest is inhabited by a real 
peasant class who have been nurtured by the soil and are bound to 
it closely. We have nothing to compare to it in the United States. 
Our own farmers belong to the middle class and have adopted most 
of the middle class attitudes. 

The farmers in the Black Forest usually own their own land and 
raise large families. On Sundays and festivals the women dress up 
in colorful old-fashioned costumes that have been preserved carefully 
from generation to generation, while during the week they work in 
the fields beside their men. The peasants show a normal and not un- 
friendly curiosity towards strangers from another land, but people 
from a neighboring valley are likely to be regarded as foreigners. 

The last question I asked Mr. Pflanze was about the general pol- 
itical inclinations of the German people. His answer was revealing. 
Before and during their period of defeat the German people had poli- 
tics thrown at them from every direction. They have had enough of it. 
With a few exceptions, of course, their main concern since 1948 has 
been to make a living. Perhaps this is a reaction against totalitari- 
anism or perhaps it is simply a weariness with everything political. 
I can only hope the German people can find peace and harmony and 
richness in their new life. Perhaps they have found it already.

Fadiman's Review Of Oedipus Rex 

On October 6 the Literary Society will present Tyrone Guthrie's 
film, Oedipi'S Rex. Tlte follou-ivg ix a review of tJiis famous film by 
the well known author and critic, Clifton Fadiman. 

When we attend a Bing Crosby or Marilyn Monroe movie we know 
pretty much what to expect in the way of mood and characters and 
sometimes even plot. Similarly, when the Athenian audience 2400 
years ago witnessed Oedipus Rer they were not put off by much that 
may seem odd to us. They were not seeking entertainment, which 
is what we are after today, but sharing in a religious ritual, as many 
of us might attend mass on Christmas Eve. They understood that 
this was not a representation of the life around them, but rather one 
man's vision of a legend as familiar to them as the story of "Cin- 
derella" might be to us. They did not go to the play to be held in 
suspense by unexpected turns of play, but to be moved freshly by a 
myth that was already part of them. 

The Greek chorus, which seems a little strange to us, fulfilled for 
them a number of practical tasks. The chorus emphasized the play's 
changes of mood and meaning. It took the place of program, curtain, 
shifts of scene, orchestra. It represented the audience, somewhat as 
the narrator in Thornton Wilder's Our Town does for us. 
(Continued in the next Column) 



Fadiman . . . 

Nor were the Greeks troubled by the gigantic 
masks the actors wore. They knew their use. The 
masks supplied visibility to 17,000 spectators, many 
of whom were seated far away from the actors. 
More important, the masks underlined the fact that 
the characters were not "real," but something mid- 
way between one's neighbor and the gods — that is, 
eternal figures in an eternal myth, without past, 
without present, without future. 

Finally, they were not puzzled by certain refer- 
ences in the play, any more than we would be puzzled 
by the old riddle Oedipus solved and that some of us 
may remember from our childhood: what animal in 
the morning walks upon four feet, at noon upon two, 
in the evening upon three ? — the answer, of course, 
being man, who first crawls, then walks upright, 
and finally leans upon a stick. 

But there is no reason for us, who are privileged 
to view Tyrone Guthrie's wonderful modern version 
of Oedipus to try to place ourselves in the position 
of a Greek audience. We are not Greeks, but twen- 
tieth century Americans. Most of us know little 
about the conventions of Greek tragedy, and there 
is no reason why we should know more. If we must 
be scholars, or must fancy ourselves classical Athe- 
nians, in order to appreciate Tyrone Guthrie's 
great picture, then the reputation of Oedijnts Rex, 
which many consider the greatest drama ever writ- 
ten, is undeserved. 

But it is NOT undeser\'ed. The play, when 
handled with the magnificent artistry of this film 
version, can be ju.st as great for us as it was for the 
Athenians. If they felt some things we cannot feel, 
the reverse is also true. Freud, for instance, has 
intensified for us the impact of the very core of this 
story, which is about a man who kills his father 
and marries his mother. Perhaps, too, we who live 
in an age of imminent man-made disaster can sense 
with a special emotion the tragedy of a human being 
who all unconsciously works his own ruin; who is, 
as the blind Tiresias tells him, his own worst enemy. 

But Oedipiis Rex will work upon us most pow- 
erfully if, when we see it, we can forget that we 
are by accident Americans living at a particular 
time and in a particular place, and try to feel only 
that we are human beings, mortal men and women, 
suffering, proud, weak, and capable of being touched 
and awed by what Sophocles called "the encounters 
of man with more than man." The poet Yeats, whose 
beautiful translation is here used, says that it was 
to be employed for an occasion "where nobody 
comes for self-improvement or for anything but 
emotion." There is the secret: we must not be 
afraid, we cool, knowledgeable twentieth-century 
people, of opening our hearts wide to the titanic 
onslaught of emotion that is Oedipus Rex. It is 
not Sophocles' aim to teach us, to surprise us, to 
amuse us; but only to make us feel that a man, 
even when caught in the most terrible and tragic 
traps, is still a marvelous creature. This is the es- 
sence of something our contemporary stage and 
screen do not provide — that is, pure tragedy. 

And yet, we have said little. There is a story 
told of the composer Schumann. After playing 
one of his compositions, he was asked by a listener, 
"What does it mean?" "I will tell you," said Schu- 
mann; and he played it again. So with this film: the 
meaning is what you feel as you watch and listen 
to this magnificent modern interpretation of one of 
the greatest of all works of dramatic art.

THE MASSACHl'SETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 27. 1957 



Sidelights 
On Sports 

Maine and Rhode Island will fire 
the oi>ening salvo of the Yankee 
Conference Rrid season at Kings- 
ton, Saturday while the rest of 
the Bean Pot set mingle wth 
neighbors in traditional non-con- 
ference rivalries. 

While the rebuilding Bears and 
the reconstructed Rams test each 
other's super sti-ucture at Kings- 
ton. Connecticut will tackle Yale 
at the Bowl, New Hampshire will 
engage Dartmouth at foliage 
festooned Hanover. Massachu- 
setts will visit the Hub for a con- 
test with BU and Vermont will 
welcome Union from the other 
side of Lake Champlain. 

Rhody, as usual, has the ad- 
vantage of its early opener with 
Northeastern, a game which it 
won last Saturday by the tradi- 
tional 12-7 score. The two touch- 
downs to one bulge over Joe Za- 
bilski's Huskies is becoming ha- 
bit forming for the Rams and is 
no longer taken as a harbinger of 
seasonal prowess. 

It is conceded that the Rams' 
Herb Muack has fleet backs in 
Jim Adams and Jim Warren, and 
a promising sophomore i)asser in 
Roger Pearson, an All-State 
quarterback at LaSalle Academy, 
who directed the URI Frosh to 
an upset win -over Brown last 
Fall. But the line is green and 
the squad appears to lack depth. 
Maine also has a residue of 
fleet ball carriers left over from 
the '56 cam.paign. But Hal West- 
erman is fashioning a new line, 
and breaking in a quarterback. 
A year ago the Bears rolled over 
Rhody 40-7, but this is another 
year, and the margin between the 
two appears to be paper thin. 
This will mark the 37th meeting 
of the two state university rivals, 
with Maine holding about a 3-2 



Cross Country 
Practice Starts 



by DON BAMFOKD 

Wearily dogging around cam- 
pus, the cnoss country team works 
out the kinks of a long summer 
vacation so they will be in top 
condition to meet Northeastern 
U. on Oct. 5th. 

The Harriers have a very 
strong and experienced senior 
section since no runners were lost 
from last year. V^eterans Tom 
Flynn, Lee Chisholm, Pete 
Schwartz, and Dave Hjerpie 
should pave the way to a very 
successful season. 

Don Madera and Pete Conway 
represent the strength for the 
juniors. Don has been running 
cross country fior quite a few 
years and will be a valuable asset 
to the team. Pete, who is back 
at Umieland after a streU-h with 



edge since 1911. The bears have 
won 21, the Rams 13. with two 
games ending in ties. 

New Hampshire, its line wiped 
out by graduation and ineligibili- 
ty, probably lacks the depth to 
cope with Dartmouth at Hanover, 
Saturday. But Chief Boston has 
the best quarterback in the con- 
ference in Bobby Trouville, who 
led the pack in passing, punting 
and total offense in '56. As long 
as the first team holds up the 
Wildcats figure to make it a ball 
game. 

At New Haven, on the other 
hand, Connecticut appears to 
have the depth to go against 
Yale. The UConns have returning 
s'-avs T,"nnv I-'intr and Paul Whit- 
ley in the backfield, and the flam- 
ing Lou Mooradian leading the 
line charge. But more imiwrtant 
that that, they have adequate re- 
placement strength. They lost 
(Continued on page U) 



Uncle Sam, has plenty of ^park 
and style and could be right up 
on top with the best. 

The new material on the squad 
from last year's frosh have terri- 
fic potential and could make the 
difference between a good team 
and the New England Champs. 
Jim Keelon and Dick Atkinson 
already have a month of train- 
ing to their credit and have 
shown a lot of promise. Bill 
(Windy) Knowlton and Jim 
Wrynn, last year's frosh miler, 
add more depth to an already 
powerful squad. 

Lee Chisholm, a star runner 
and marathoner, will be watched 
very closely to see what a band 
of gold has done to his running. 
The 4.6 mile course is quite a 
challenge to any trackster's abili- 
ty and endurance. Many have 
their sights set on the UMass 
course record of 22 min. 18 sec., 
set by Squeaky Hom back in 
1955. 

Let's see a good crowd on Oct. 
5lh at 3:30, at the upper end /of 
Alumni Field, and watch the 
Harriers battle Northeastern. 



Independent 



League 



There will be an important 
meeting of all INDEPEND- 
ENT LEAGUE Team Mana- 
gers and Captains on Mon- 
day, September 30th at 7 
p.m. in the downstairs lounge 
of Van Meter, This meeting 
will take place to prepare an 
Independent league sports 
schedule so that the league 
may stai-t its activities. 



Fraternity 
Notes 

QTV BE.\TS AEPI 

Tuesday night QTV beat AEPi 
in a hard fought game that was 
decided in the final minutes, due 
to some fine clutch playing by the 
entire QTV squad. 

Al Phillips and Fred "Tank" 
Purches starred on defense, with 
Al making the defensive play of 
the game with a timely safety. 

The ofl'ense featured the fine 
passing of Joe O'Keefe who threw 
the long-game-winning-pass in 
the final minutes. End Connie 
Rousseau scored both touch- 
downs on pass plays. Don Dick- 
son also starred on both the of- 
fensive and defensive. 

The first touchdown came on a 
spectacular pass fnom Lou Coun- 
cilman to Rousseau, who, cov- 
ered by two defenders, grabbed 
the ball and raced for a touch- 
down. 

The second touchdown came on 
a sensational pass from O'Keefe 
to Rousseau. 

The QTV record now stands 
at two wins and one defeat. 
TKE REMAINS UNBEATEN 
TKE stretched its winning 
streak to three games without 
u setback by defeating Alpha 
Sig 31-0 on the great quarter- 
backing of John Moi-ris. TKE's 
defensive line, led by Ron Craven 
and Denis Mooney, stifled the 
Alpha Sig passing attack. Dom 
Gualtieri made the play of the 
night by intercepting an Alpha 
Sig aerial on his own ten yard 
line and going all the way be- 
hind key blocks by Morris and 
Mooney. Morris, Gualtieri, Ed 
Cronin, and Bob Mortimer ac- 
counted for TKE's 31 points. 

TKE has scored 90 iwints in 
three games, with Morris and 
Mortimer contributing 33 and 31 
respectively.

Mr. Otto Pflanze of the History 
Department addressed The In- 
ternational Relations <'kih on 
"The Recent German Elections" at 
a meeting held in the Middlesex 
Room of the Student Union last 
night. 

Mr. .Ai'enauei'.=^ victory was the 
German people's choice of ^he 
road to reunification rather than 
a repudiation of the Communists. 
said Pflanze. He said that the 
results of the election reflected 
a desire on the part of the citi- 
zens of West Germany to con- 
tinue the *'re-unificatiion thru 
.strength" policy of the NATO- 
minded Christian Democrat 
Party rather than the "re-unifica- 
tion thru negiotiation" program 
of the neutralistic Socialist 
Democratic Party.

for Massachusetts School Com- 
mittees," the first of its type in 
the state's histoi*y, is announced 
toilay by t'he Bureau of Govern- 
ment Hesearch at the U. of Mass. 

According to Dr, John Gilles-

able in one publication. 

The handbook will be distrib- 
uted to all school committee mem- 
bers by the Mass. Association of 
School Committees. The bureau 
at the University will handle re- 
quests for additional copies. 

The handbook provides basic 
information about the operations 
of school committees and ex- 
plains the relation of the commit- 
tee to the school system and lo- 
cal government. Included in the 
handbook is a list of educational 
organizations, both state and na- 
tional, a bibliography for a 
school committee bookshelf, a 
check list of policy functions and 
an index to state laws dealing 
with public schools.

Brennan Says 

"Only stories of the highest 
caliber will go in the Quarterly 
this year," Tom Brennan, Editor- 
in-Chief, stated last night to 
new members of the Quarterly 
literai-y staff. 

In striving to publish a liter- 
ary magazine UMass can really 
be proud of, Brennan said, stor- 
ies will be c^hosen solely on the 
basis of quality writing and 
their appeal to the campus at 
large. 

"All students are invited to 
submit their stories, poems, and 
art to the Quarterly," he contin- 
ued, "and they may leave their 
work in the basket just inside 
the Quarterly o.'fice of the Stu- 
dent Union." 

An English major, Brennan is 
a junior and belongs to QTV. 

As submitted by Marion Mc- 
Coi-mick, Assistant Editor, the

VARIETIES CALL 
FOR ALL TALENT 

WAR OF WITS WILL WAKEN MIRTH 
OF A CAMPUS, ADELPHIA SAYS 



Campus Varieties, the annual 
effort of campus wit and talent 
to present to the university a 
humorous view of college life, 
will take place this year on Feb- 
ruary 14 and 15 on the Bowker 
stage. 

Auditions This Week 

Adelphia and Mortarboard, co- 
sponsora of tfie event, have an- 
nounced that due to the great 
amount of preparation nec««sary 
for this year's show, auditions 
will be heard earlier than ever. 
They will take place on Tuesday 
of this week from 2-5 and Thurs- 
day of this week and on Tues- 
day of next week from 1-5 p.m. 
on the Bowker stage in Stock- 
bridge Hall. 

This year's three act comedy 
mxisical "will be the best ever," 
says Robert Larson of Adelphia. 
"The particularly witty theme 
of the show has tremendous jkxs- 
sibilities if it receives all out 
support from the various cam- 
pus personalities v/ho have a 
flair for comedy, singing, danc- 
ing, instrumental izing, or even 
the ever needed back stage sup- 
port cast." Larson and his com- 
mittee have invited evei^yone, re- 
gardless of what they think 
tJheir chances are, to come to 
the auditions. 

Brown Writes Script 

The committee chairmen feel 
very fortunate in having two of 
the most talented wits on cam- 
pus to work on the mechanics of 
the show. The script was written 
by Matthew "Mat" Brown, remem- 
bered as the Master of Cere- 
monies on QTV's takeoff on The 
Ed Sullivan Show at last year's 
IFC skits.

Graduate 
Education Is 
Studied By Aid 

Graduate education will soon 
receive a helping hand from the 
Carnegie Corporation of New 
York. The Corporation will spon- 
sor a two-year $100,000 study of 
graduate education in the United 
States. 

The project will be conducted 
by Bernard Berelson, who has 
been director of the Ford Foun- 
dation's behavioral sciences pro- 
gram since 1951. 

Mr. Berelson will be aoncerned 
with the objectives, standards, 
and functions of the graduate 
school in the American system 
of higher education. He will make 
a broad ^evie^v of the history of 
graduate education and its in- 
stitutions in order to locate and 
interpret major trends and ac- 
tive issues. 

Among the specific topics he 
will survey are the recruitment 
of students and placement of 
graduates; relations between 
graduate education and profes- 
sional education, and between 
gi-aduate education and under- 
graduate programs; the develop- 
ment of po.st-doctoral programs; 
and problems of financial .sup- 
port. 

In the cour.se of his study Mr. 
Berelson will interview univer- 
•ity presidents, deans, depart- 
ment chairmen, faculty, stinlent.s.

Write-in Vote 



David J. Beaubien '57, has won 
honorable mention in a national 
es.say contest sponsored by the 
Martin Co. of Baltimore, Mary- 
land. 

The contest was run in connec- 
tion with the company's manu- 
facture of the Vanguard ix)cket 
that will launch the earth satel- 
lite. His essay was written while 
he was a student here. 

Beaubien received a $500 prize, 
with a like amount going to the 
university. 

In a letter to George Marston, 
Dean of the School of Engineer- 
ing, Beaubien requested the mon- 
ey be given to the .Amateur Ra- 
dio Club. Marston informed the 
Collegian that the request has 
been approved by President 
Mather. 

The three top prize winners 
in the contest received checks 
totaling $8500. The three, Theo- 
dore E. Lang of Pasedena, Cal., 
1st. Lt. Robert L. Howell of 
Clinton, Mo., and Eugene A. 
Mechtly of Red Lion, Pa., were 
guests of the Martin Co. in Bal- 
timore. 

While at the university Beau- 
bien, who majored in Electrical 
Engineering, was a member of 
the Newman Club, the Interfra- 
ternity Council, the American In- 
stitute of Electrical Engineers, 
the Institute of Radio Engineers, 
and Alpha Gamma Rho. 

He is now employed by the 
General Electronics Laboraboi"y 
in Cambridge, Mass.

THE MASSACHISETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, SEPTEMBEIt 30. 1957 



Why Not ''Scout" Students? 

Some of us managed to have a good week- 
end in spite of what happened to "the boys" 
this Saturday. But it was a struggle. It is 
never much fun to lose, and to lose by such 
a margin is just plain humiliating. Perhaps 
this Saturday, and last, too, merely adds fuel 
to the argument that what the university 
needs most of all is a football team — a foot- 
ball team at any cost. 

Perhaps the people who feel this way are 
foi-getting that AIC is a powerhouse this 
year, and that BU is simply out of our 
league. We are just not ready for the "big" 
time — in fact we are not even ready for the 
"bigger" time. 

However, trying to break into another 
league is in itself not objectionable. What 
is objectionable is that perhaps we are not 
trying to break into a greater "academic" 
league with the same gusto. We are scout- 
ing athletes with the hope of eliminating 
another BU slaughter next year, but are we 
scouting engineers, writers, artists as well? 

In February of 1952 a newly elected edi- 
torial editor of the Collegian wrote an edi- 
torial that was quoted in both the Spring- 
field and Boston papers. The subject is of 
particular interest to us at the university 
today, and it will be one of even greater in- 
terest to us in the future. The following are 
excerpts from this editorial: 

"Webster defines a university as *an in- 
stitution organized for teaching and study in 
the higher branches of learning.' Since we 
are in fact such an institution, we must as- 
sume that those who come here do so to study 
in the higher branches of learning . . . 

"It has been said that winning athletic 
teams bring publicity to a university. 
Granted, they do, but what kind of pub- 
licity. . . What responsible person cares if 
the University of South Jalopy won every 
football, basketball and baseball game on its 
sch-dule? What does that say about the 
adefjuacy of the university to prepare men 
who in later life contribute to the better- 
ment of the world? 

'^ "We must not forget that we are intelli- 
gent college students. Not even a high school 
student would ever select a college on the 
basi.<i of its athletic record if he were a think- 
ing individual. If high school students are 
to come to this university through that at- 
traction only, then we would be better off 
without them. 

"The consideration of this problem is in- 
tensely important for our university today, 
for the attitude it reflects is but a small part 
of a distorted scale of values that seems to 
be shared by many students here, and indeed 
by many outside the university. Just what 
is o'lr set of values? Is it not good students 
and ^ood professors that make a university 
whnt it is rather than a high athletic stand- 
i'-gr? We should grow up enough to realize 
that students and professors are thr best 
ppii .-cMf^f^^.g of r^Y^y university. . . 

\. are not attiicking the value of ath- 
!• .; in any sense. We idealize that whether 
a ♦nam wins or Insos, athletics is one of the 
most im|)n}lant pro't ssos of human develop- 
ment, but \vi> do insist that T^Mass refrain 
from any ai^proacli, however slight, to 
'bought' athletes. 

"We will not .solve the probltn-n of the 
atomic homi) or of cancer by attracting ath- 
lete • for tho sake of athletics. We mnij help 
to sohc these pro1)loms by attraetinpr brains 
— v,'*ethei- tlioy are <'iuase(l in hi-awn or 

'1 liis was written in ll)r)2 — over five years 
ago. The canijuis was <'onceriie(1 about tlio 
Btf."''ai-(ls of the iini\e)-sity then, and at this 
time there wasn't a RTAP to eontend witli. 
Tofia'. our problem is far more acute. What 
art we going to do about it? 

Suggested solution: If we must scout 
I. a n, let us scout brains as well!

Students Invited To A 
Year In Scandinavia 

Last week 55 American students met outside Copen- 
hagen to evaluate their first community stay of one month 
in Danish and Swedish non-English-speaking families. As 
one student said, "T did not know one could learn so much 
about America by living in a Swedish community." An- 
other commented, "I wish my friends back home could hear 
me talk with the Danes in their ovrn language, and this 
after only one month!" 

These graduate and undergraduate American students, 
from 45 different colleges and universities and 28 different 
states, are members of tlie 1957-58 Scandinavian Seminare. 

This week these students will return to their second 
one-month community stays with private families in Den- 
mark, Norway and Sweden, before entering one of the fam- 
ous Folk Colleges for two semesters. 

Cost for Year Abroad, $900 

Each student accepted to the Seminars pays approxi- 
mately 75 Sf of the actual cost of board, room and tuition 
for a year in Scandinavia. The balance is made up by sub- 
sidies from the respective Scandinavian governments. 
Therefore, the student's fee for living and learning in Scan- 
dinavia for one academic year is only $900. 

Forty per cent of the Seminar students are spending 
their year in the Seminar's "Junior- Year-Abroad" program. 
Another 40^f are college graduates in the Seminar's gradu- 
ate program. The rest are teachers, professors and people 
with an interest in education. 

The Seminars offer to all their students comprehen- 
sive programs in a Scandinavian language, literature and 
culture, with individual study opportunities in adult educa- 
tion, art, crafts and design, agriculture, physical education, 
history and the social sciences. 

Experimental Approach to Education 

Mr. Nielsen, the Seminar's Director, points out that the 
principal value of the Seminar program lies in its experi- 
mental approach to prmon-centcred, liberal-arts education 
in an international setting. 

'he Scandinavian Seminar's New York ofliee at 127 
1 ' Street. New York 21, N.Y. is now receiving applica- 

tions I or the academic year 1958-59. 



Miss Allison Tidnian, a ^n-a(h!;it.' of W'uidrrhilt Uni- 
versity and (iehl I'cpi'esentatixe Uu- the Scandinavian Se- 
minar, will visit the university on Oct. 10-12. ISIiss Tidman 
will interview sturlents and professors intei'este(l in a year's 
study in a Scandinavian country— Denmark, Norway or 
Sweden, under one of the Seminar's programs: 

(1) Scandinavian Seminar for .1 uni or- "N'ear- Abroad 

(2) Scandinavian Seminar for (ira<hiate,^ 

(3) Scandinavian Seminal' for l%ihicatnrs 

(4) Scandinavian Semmai' I'or Agi'icnlt ural Studies 
Miss Tidman may l)e r(»nta< te<l thiough Mr. John Zeender 
of the History Department, whose office is in the basement 
of Old Chapel. 



Campus Comment 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(T//e ideas and opinicus expressed in this eohann 
are those entirely of Mr. Kominski and do not ne- 
cessarily express the opinion of the staff of tlie 
COLLEXJIAN.) 

Student one: "Well, I .see they have the annex 
to Goessmann nearly completed. Boy, they'll sure 
have a lot of room in there for chem classes." 

Student two: "Are you kidding? You've been 
around here long enough to know that they'll prob- 
ably schedule the annex for freshman phys ed classes 
and all courses in finance." 

He's not kidding, either. Did you ever notice 
where half of the classes up here are situated? 
The English classes probably take top prize for 
their locations — they range all the way from beings 
located in the Engineering Building to the cow barns. 

Now, in order to please my logic prof, I'll steer 
clear of this so-called special pleading falla/;y and 
take up the other side of the situation . . . because . . . 
there is, believe it or not, another side. 

Some of the departments are well organized. 
Such departments as those of government, econom- 
ics, and sociology, and the languages are situated 
(offices and classes) in Machmer Hall. A situation 
which is quite handy tc professors and students as 
well. 

I. Maybe, someday, there will be a building that 
will house the offices and classes in English and 
history. Maybe bewildered freshmen will not then 
wander all over campus wondering why their Eng- 
lish classes are in buildings which display atmos- 
pheres well known to engineers and agriculturists. 

OK. Now, you're going to say that there are 
too many classes and not enough space in one build- 
ing for all classes in the same subject. Fine, a point 
well taken. But, why the heck are there so many 
empty rooms in Machmer at certain times when 
these classes are in session. 

I bid a peace with the administration, however. 
We're sLill growing; we're bound to have a few 
troubles here and there . . . growing pains and all 
that. We'll make it someday. Someday in the near 
future, freshmen won't think that French is taught 
in that Hall by the same name. We'll have all the 
buildings we need for all the classes we can handle 
. . . just hang on.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 19:.T 



BU Crushes Redmen 66-6, 
Sabourin Out For 2 Weeks 



A sixty-fivt> year old vendetta 
was brought to a climax Satur- 
day night as the H.U. Terriers 
racked up a point for every 
year with one for good measure 
in administering a 66-6 shell- 
acking to the Redmen at B.U. 
Field before 10,000 fans. 

In 1892, the Redmen buried 
the Terriers, 62-0, but that thorn 
was not only removed from the 
B.U. hide Saturday, but was 
grown into a full .sized stake and 
used to batter the weary Redmen 
into insensibility. 

New H.U. ooach, Steve Sinko, 
showed off an impressive team in 
his debut. With the exception of 
two standouts. Fullback Jimmy 
Dean and quai-tei-hrick Len Hill, 
all three of the T -rrier liackfields 
lofkttl et|u:il in caliber, caliber .45 
that is as the enormous holes in 
the UMass line showed. 

It took the fast-niioving Ter- 
riers less than thieo minutes 
after the openin»j gun to cross 
the UMass goal line. About five 
minutes later they came ramming 
right hack in to run the score to 
13-0 in the first quainter. 

The Redmen fought a good de- 
fensive war in the second quarter 
but could dio nothing with the 
ball themselves against the Ter- 
riers. The Len Hill and Co. unit 
added another TD t)efore half-

* * Hi 

The last notice for the entry 
of independent teams is today. 
No rosters will be accepted for 
Independent League teams af- 
ter 5 p.m. Monday. Right now, 
plans are being made to limit 
the loop to eight teams so entries 
should be in as soon as possible. 

The schedule for next week 
will be published in Monday's 
Collegian, and also all infomia- 
tion such as standings, schedules, 
posti)onements and results will 
be posted every day, up to date, 
on the Intramural Bulletin Board 
in the equipment room of the 
Cage, 

Unco again t'his year, the early 
start making it possible, plans 
are undei'way to select an AU- 
Star team in the Fraternity 
Loop. Although in the past, the 
All-Star squad was seliKjted by 
ballot from the fraternities, this 
season the officials and the direc- 
tors will meet at ttic **nd of the 
sesison and nominate and el(><t 
AU-Star teams ♦"mm each 1< a^-n' 
There is a possibility that they 
may also screen the three league 
All-Star clubs and select an All- 
Campus AU-Star team. With the

time and at the half the score 
stood, 19-0. 

The fireworks started at the 
opening kickoff of the second 
half. In less than four minutes 
the Terriers had shattered what- 
ever composure the Redmen had 
left and had pushed the ball 
acrx)ss the last white line three 
more times. 

By the time the teams changed 
ends for the start of the final 
stanza, the Redmen had suffered 
the ignominy of having had 33 
points scored on them in a single 
period and were on the short end 
of a 52-0 score. In the fourth pe- 
riod tflie B.U. third team added 
two more TD's to conclude the 
B.U. scoring parade. Particularly 
impressive in the third aggrega- 
tion was Tom O'Connell, junior 
halfback converted from quarter- 
back, who twice scampered into 
the promised land. 

The Redmen fmally got a spark 
of life in the waning minutes of 
the ganie, and with sophomore 
Jim Shay operating at his best 
they brfiught the pigskin 55 yards 
to finally break into the scoring 
column with Roger Kindred buck- 
ing over from the three. Win 
MacDonald, making his finst start 
since last year's Connecticut fias- 
co, played almost the entire game 
and figured prominently in the 



big UMass push. He picked up 
two of the Redmen's five first 
downs and was a defensive stal- 
wart all evening. 

Rooftop Ray-vings 

The Redmen looked about five 
years out of their cla.ss in tackl- 
ing an outfit such as B.U. The 
Terriers wore them down with 
sheer manpower and were scor- 
ing almost at will near the end 
. . . Of course when a team 
pushes fiver three TD's in the 
space of two minutes it is enough 
to completely demoralize any 
team . . . Big John O'Keefe 
proved his worth last night as an 
iron man. He didn't leave the 
lineup until the final three or 
four minuts of the last period 

. . . In the same vein, Lou 
Varrichione showed off his ver- 
satility as he played both guard 
and tackle, alternating between 
the two and staying in the lineup 
most of the game . . . Bob De- 
Vaile played one of the finest 
^^ioies of his carrer. We have 
never seen him crack into the 
line with such authority a.*? he did 
Saturday night . . . Although 
both Bill Maxwell and Ron 
Blume had trouble finding their 
receivers with the ball, don't sell 
them short. Hill was hitting his 
ends right on the nose. 



INTRAMURALS 

After two weeks, the Frater- 
nity League standings are shap- 
ing up into what seems to be a 
good race for the title. Last ^ear 
at this time, TEP and SAE were

this year no less than five teams 
are granted a good shot at the

On Sports 



A glance at "Baseball's Top 
Ten" this weekend showed that 
this has been an exceptionally 
good year for baseball's old pros. 
The 39 year old Ted Williams has 
completly banished any ideas to 
the effect that he was washed 
up. He became the oldest man 
ever to win a major league bat- 
ting crown. Tn the senior circuit 
Stan Musial seems to have shown 
anyone that wants to notice that 
he is still "Stan the Man". He 
won anoth'-T this year's senior 
league batting crown. Hank Ar- 
ron and Roy Sievers picked up 
the remaining % of the triple 
crowns in their respective 
leagues. Sievers' triumph was uni- 
que in that he became the first 
Washington National ever to win 
a home run title. 

The Broadway book-makers 
have set the odds at 8-5 on the 
Yankees to win l>oth the series 
and the (irst game. The first 
game will find the Braves' crafty 
old pro Warren Spahn gx>ing 
against the Yankees' 21 game 
winner Whity Ford. This is the 
2',',y<] seriep for New York and 
the first I' 1 '.raves (from 

Milwaukee that i.s). "Old C4ise" 
will be going after his 8th 
world's champion.'^hiii and l-red 
!Ian< V is in his fir t i ie-. 

This year's series could very 
well sot a new lattendance mark 
since both New York and Mil- 
waukee have very large seating 

capacities.

ST. REGIS 
AWARD 

The second St. Regis award of 
the 1957-58 season, this week 
goes to Billy Burke for his hat 
trick performance, as he paced 
the UMass soccer team to a 4-2 
win over Coast Guard Academy 
Saturday afternoon. 

Burke, playing his third year 
of varsity soccer, in the words 
of coach Larry Briggs is "very 
fast and I've have seen very few 
that can outrun him. He's im- 
proved this year with his kick- 
ing and his ability to handle the 
ball. He's a great competitor and, 
perhaps that's his greatest attri- 
bute." Congratulations to Billy 
Burke.

Finances 

by RALPH LAWTON 



Did you know that $136,245.28 
worth of checks were cashed at 
the Student Union last semester? 
Did you know that this sum rep- 
resented 7,913 checks? These and 
many other eye-opening statistics 
concerning Union operations were 
made available to the Collegian 
by Union Director William D. 
Scott. 

The totals shown may appear 
even more impressive when the 
comparatively short length of 
time that the Union operated 
last semester is considered. 

The total number who contri- 
buted to the cash register in the 
Hatch was 401,333; whereas 
104,433 did likewise in the Uni- 
versity Store. The Games Area 
accomodated 87,953 people while 
the Lobby Counter increased this 
total by an additional 69,528. 

Activities rated high as welL 
There were 139 scheduled pro-

DELAYS 
OFFERED 
TO ROTC 

The Department of the Anny 
announced today that Army 
ROTC graduates, graduating on 
or after 1 May 1958, who de- 
sire to take post-graduate work 
may now apply for a delay not 
to exceed tftiree years in report- 
ing to active duty. 

The policy was originally re- 
stricted to students taking grad- 
uate studies in technical re- 
search and scientific activities. 
Now it pemiits any Army ROTC 
graduate to enter i)Ost-graduate 
study in recognized fields at de- 
gree-granting institutions. 

Must Be Competent 

The ROTC graduate will be 
required to furnish evidence that 
he has a reasonable chance of 
acceptance for post-graduato 
training. Once granted a <lelay, 
he will "have to reapply every 
six months to maintain his po.st- 
graduate status. 

It is possible that the Army 
may not be able to use all of 
these "delayed" officers in their 
chosen field of post-graduate 
study. 

Those meeting the qualifica- 
tions of critical specialists, for 
w4iich 'he ai-^iy has a requii-e- 
ment, w.ll be stN'i^tcd for a tour 
of two years active <luty and will 
thereby forfeit their opportunity 
of being ordered to sei-ve only 
six months activ.- duty for train- 
ing. 




CATCH YOUR EYE? 



"An actual national calamity" 
and a "potential personal trag- 
edy" were the terms used by Dr. 
John R. Everett, president of 
Hollins College, in describing the 
uneducated woman. 

Dr. Everett stated in his col- 
umn that a g'vl who marries at 
the "age of fifteen knows tiow to 
read a cook book, darn a sock, 
have babies, wash a dish, clean a 
house, and generally make her- 
self useful." 

It is doubtful whether a col- 
lege education will teach a wom- 
an how to do fhese things better, 
he wrote, but there is no doubt 
that they will learn how to do a 
few more things than this.

From Contented Cows 
To Discontented Students 

by JIM HIRTLE 

"Students eating at the three dining halls on campus 
will go back to drinking their milk from bottles in about 
two weeks," Prof. Hankinson of the Dairy Dept. announced 
today. 

When the remodeling of Paige Lab was begun last 
spring, contracts were let for the supplying of milk to the 
University Commons, Greenough, and Butterfield, he said. 

**But the contracts did not specify whether the milk 
should be in cartons or bottles," continued Mr. Hankinson, 
"and Deary Bros, got the low bid with cartons." 

Students Prefer Cartons 

Students were immensely 
pleased. There were no moi^e bot- 
tles to break. It also pleased the 
workers in the dining halls who 
no longer "had to wash them out 
■before returning them to the 
Dairy Dept. 

But to the dismay of maaxy 
students and to some members of 
the dining hall hierarchy, the 
old bottles will return in a few 
weeks from an entirely i-emod- 
eled plant in Paige Lab. Why? 
Because tftie University simply 
cannot afford to jxack milk in 
cardboard containers for campus 
use. 

One million half-pints of milk 
are bottled per year on this 
campus. A milk bottle which 
costs a little over 5c can be XLSed 
60 or 70 times on this campus 
as breaka^ and loss is fairly 
.low, whereas the cai-tons costing 
2c apiece would inin into a great 
expense.

ADAPT OR DIE... 



Time was 
paths of this 



Good j;riof ! When will the bulldozers stop 
plaguing us. 

when everyone walking the 
reservation felt all nice and 
safe and secure. But no more. Now we are 
subjected to all kinds of imaginable hazards 
— falling bricks, ferocious tank-like digger- 
uppers of sidewalks, gaping holes, mountains 
of dirt (taken from the gaping holes), and 
even entrenching tools. 

Pretty soon no one will dare to go to 
class, and then where will we be? Perhaps 
like Linus we will have to find security by 
holding our favorite blanket to ou)- respec- 
tive ears. 

As frightening as all this is, it is here 
to stay, and all the braves and squaws of 
Umieland will just have to Adapt or Die. (I 
think Charles Darwin is usually credited 
with thinking up this phrase, but I can re- 
member thinking it at a very early age.) 

This is something like going to the dentist 
when you have a toothache. It is necessary. 
All you need is the right attitude. Just tell 
yourself that if you fall in a gaping hole 
and sprain your ankle today, tomorrow in 
its place (the gaping hole, that is) there will 
be a gleaming new sidewalk. 

These are the pains we must bear in the 
name of Progress. Everything is getting 
"bigger and better" at the university. Any- 
way, this is what we are promised. Thus, 
all our pain and suffering is necessary . . . 
and from a look at the master plan we would 
guess that this pain and suffering will be 
necessary for many moons. 

^ As the old Irish proverb says, "Rome 
wasn't built in a day."

DEMOS AT UMASS 

Among the controversies presently rag- 
ing on campus is the question of the recent 
decision of the senate concerning the filling 
of the senator-at-large vacancies. This de- 
cision was to allow the class officers to ap- 
point members of their respective classes to 

ill said vacancies, instead of holding a spe- 

;ial at-large election. 

At press time there were four such va- 
cancies one in both the sophomore and 
senior classes, and two in the junior class. 
This is quite a few senators to appoint. 

To hold a general election at this time of 
year would be cumbersome. It would involve 
much hard work, and many headaches. But 
like bulldozers and gaping holes, it is ne- 
cessary. Granted, appninUnq senators is far 

nore expedient, but perhaps expediency 

ihould not be our goal. 

Nowhere in the constitutional framework 
of a democracy are representatives of the 
people apfwinfffJ ', they are rlrrted. Think 
of the time and money it would save if the 
President of the Ihiited St^ites appointed the 
members of Congress. Perhaps it would save 
time and money, but all of you would be 
shocked at such a dictatoj-jal institution. 

It will be a sad day at the University of 
Massachusetts wlicn we don't even have time 
for (It'moci'acy. — S.J.H.

Machmer Mirror 

(Time: Around 8:50 a.m. Place: Front steps of Machmer) 
. . . Frosty morning. Bitterly cold. Evidently, winter's anxious to 
pounce upon this hallowed campus before Indian summer even has a 
chance to get acquainted . . . Must be a million and one College Joes 
cutting across campus toward Machmer. Paws stuffed deep in their 
jackets, they bury their ears twenty thou.sand leagues under their 
jackets . . . Obviously, they're freezing. Yet they walk. They couldn't 
run. That would be considered undignified . . . But these pitiful souls 
braving the knifing wind, though intrepid, at least are not as fool- 
hardy as the Bermuda beauties perched on the front steps . . . There 
these femme fatales straddle both granite walls, carrying on an ani- 
mated chatter and pretending not to notice each other's shivering limbs 
. . . One young, winsome Circe, youthful maybe, yet still bewitching 
in something airy they call a kiltie, takes a last drag on her weed, 
then very casually flips the butt on the deck. Ah, the grandeur of 
collegiate sophistication! Oh sure, there's butt cans inside. But most 
people think they're spittoons. , . . So, to repeat, there they sit and 
shoot the breeze, while the gusty wind plays havoc with their legs. 
They talk, and the wind blows hard, and they shiver harder. The 
wind blows harder, and they r;hudder even more. But no one goes 
inside . . . They're all around. Just look. Big shorts, little shorts, all 
sizes. Some complimentary, some aren't. But all Bermudas have 
one thing in common, they're thin, like cigarette paper . . . Legs, 
legs, legs, oops, two hairy ones. Belong to Stan the man. Nice legs 
too, not skimpy like the others, nor too fat either . . . Nero the wolf 
saunters past. He shows his glistening teeth to one of the Bermuda 
beauties. A pint-size brunette, she projects herself off the cement 
wall, struts inside Machmer, haughty-like. Nero's all alert. Does she? 
Will she? . . . "Yep, she did," he says to his buddy, the campus poet 
. . . "Hmmm, those ever-conscious Bermudas," Ogden replies. He 
strokes his jaw thoughtfully for a moment, then pipes up, 

"Let her think you not genteel 

For whistlin' loud at your find; 

Though she spins away on heel. 
She will always look behind." 
. . . Nero giggles insanely, Ogden bows appreciatively, and Stan the 
man cruises over. He's all shook, as usual ... "I feel like I'm in an 
icebox," he moans. "It was cold like this all last week too, when the 
band practiced every day for the BU game." . . . Stan the man shakes 
his head di.sgustedly, continues, "I bel we in the band practiced as 
much as the football team. And cold! Brrr!" . . . But Stan and his 
Bermudas doesn't go inside either. That would be admitting cowardice. 
Besides, there's still a minute le^t to class starts . . . Scraps of di- 
alogue picked up from two young ladies .strolling by. They're in 
.skirts. No, they're not frosh, but they are fresh ... 1st senior: 
"Personally, I think it's downright stupid to wear Bermudas when 
it's freezing out," . . . 2nd senior: "Well, I don't look .sharp in thorn 
anyway." . . . And as two beefy profs waddle by, one hears from 
Pliny the younger, "The demand for Bermudas is va.stly exceeding 
the supply. They are .ibout as di.stracting in the classroom as the 
flies buzzing around your nose in the so-called Hatch". . . And from 
Pliny the elder: "Dumm koi)f ! They don't afl'oct me in the least." . . . 
Courage is when a girl, bow-legged or not, forgets campus beauty 
titles and wears Bermudas solely for comfort. But there's never any 
comfort in the Fall.

Molly 'n Me 'n BU 

by SASSAFRAS 

Went down to the BU game last Saturday. First 
time I've been in Boston. I come from Eetchawata- 
mee Falls myself. A few things about Boston I 
don't understand. Like what? Well, in Eetchawata- 
mee we ride around the block, you know, and we end 
up where we started from. Same street, you know. 
In lioston I went around the block and ended up 
two streets away. I wouldn't have minded, but we 
ended up in the middle of a parade. I guess people 
must've thought we were part of it because they 
cheered as we went by. But it was slow going, be- 
ing in the middle of a parade the way we were. 

We saw the sights before the game, me and my 
girl. There are a lot of sights in Boston. Like Boston 
Common, you know. I've always wanted to see 
Boston Common. And do you know what impressed 
me most about this place? It was the pigeons. I 
never saw so many pigeons in one place before. My 
girl though, my girl's name is Molly, she didn't 
care too much for them. You see, one of them 
flopped onto her head which was sort of cute. But 
it wouldn't get oflF, and that made Molly sorta mad, 
especially when something happened that was sorta 
embarassing. You can't really blame her, you know. 
I would've been mad too. 

Oh, you want to hear about the game? Well, 
it was real exciting. All those touchdowns and every- 
thing. Well, I don't know too much about football 
because the only sport we have in Eetchawatamee 
Falls that anyone gets real excited about, is fishing. 
We do quite a lot of fishing. But anyway, this is 
the way it seemed to me. One of our boys, you 
could tell they were ours if they wore yellow pants, 
one of them would get his hands on the ball and then 
he'd pass that ball to someone on the other team 
who was wearing different colored pants. Our boys, 
they aimed real well. Those Bostonians hardly had 
to move to catch that ball! The score? Well, I 
hardly know how they scored that game because 
they said that those Bostonians beat us 66 to 6. and 
we aimed real well, too. Those Bostonians could 
hardly ever get the ball to us so good. 



The Cat And The Poet 

by L. R. 

They say the poets have imagination. 

It's their vocation 

(Wild conceits and such). 

But they don't have much 

Compared to a cat. 

Any cat, at that, 

Is a regular visionary, 

Adept at imagery especially. 

Like seeing a mouse where there isn't any, 

And catching it, too. Of course, many 

Poets do the same, 

For fame, 

But aren't as skillful at it, 

Drat it.

THE MASSACHISETTS tOl.I.EfilAN. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, l9.->: 



Yanks Fovored To Take Title . . . 

Spahii vs. Ford As Series Opens, 
UM Students Pick Braves To Win 



Well, everyone seems to have 
his probleniN these days and 
Casey St^'n^el's seem to be a 
little bit biKf?er than most of 
ours. The briRhtest star in the 
Yankee g^alaxy, Mickey Mantle, 
is at best an ailing starter. 
*'M<>ose" tikovvran, one of the 
leading Yankee run-producers is 
also on the doubtful list. 

On the other hand the Braves' 
big guns are well oiled and ready 
to start tiring. It is too bad 
though that the phenomenal 
"Hurricane" fJ.'>b Hazle will not 
be given a cham-;' to continue his 
astounding frats in the Fall 
classic. 

Man for man the Yanks are 



rated better than the Braves and 
they do have the big edge in ex- 
peri»'nce. The odds are still hold- 
ing at 8-.') in favor of the 
Bombers. Casey's boys got 
« neither break in that they faced 
a southpaw, Frank Bauman, in 
the season's finale in Boston. 
They're facing the Iffty Spa'nii in 
today'.s openor. 

Despite all these facts the 
majority of the University stu- 
dents still think that it will be 
tlie Braves in a hard fought 7 
Ku.'iH series with the Tribe tak- 
ing thi opener behind Spahn.

SIDELIGHTS ON SPORTS 

Sabourin Out For 5 Weeks, 
Only 29 Redmen Scrimmage 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke re- 
ported last night that three 
starters and two utility men 
haven't as yet recovered from 
the devastating effects of coach 
Steve Sinko's B.U. Terriers. How- 
ever, with an open date scheduled 
for this Saiturday, he has high 
hopes of being able to use them 
all, except half back Armand Sa- 
bourin, again-st powerful Connec- 
ticut on October 12th. Sabourin 
received a torn cartilage in his 
knee Saturday at Boston, and 
will be sidelined for at least four 
to five weeks. 

Another knee injury, this one 
to end Johnny O'Keefe, has been 
diagnosed as a bad bruise and 
John should be ready for action 
■shortly. The third sidelined 
starter Tony Piraino has a bad 
head cold but should be ready to 
practice again later this week. 

Utility back Tom Brown has 
been hampered lately by back 
trouble and reserve guard Hal 
Wilson is recuperating from a rib 
injury. At the present time the 
remaining 29 of Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke's tiny squad are sound. 
« <■ * * * 

Tufts sophomore Andy Kerr, 
who played his first varsity game 
Saturday against Bowdoin, re- 
placing co-captain Joe Asiaf, was 
named on the Eastern College 
Athletic Conference team of the 
week — Kerr was also selected as 



the outstanding lineinan of the 
ga:iR' — Halfback I)avt' Fnx of 
Lynn, who scored the second 
Tufts touchdown, will miss the 
Bates game this week due to an 
injured left leg. 

4> 4i « « « 

Ron Stuart, first string Brand- 
eis quarterback is expected to be 
ready for Sunday's American 
International game. Stuart 
missed the Colby game because 
of a wrenched knee. Guard Bill 
Ruth, out for three weeks with a 
bad back, took part in light prac- 
tice yesterday, but it is not cer- 
tain when he will be ready. 

* « « * 41 

Four Colby starters were side- 
lined at yesteixiay's practice with 
injuries suffered in the Brandeis 
game. Out with multiple bruises 
are linemen Jim Fox of Newton 
and Jim Redmond of Westchester, 
Pa., and halfbacks George Roden 
and Bob Auriieman, both of West 

New Y'ork, N.J.

Dartmouth Coach Bob Black- 
man was impressed with his 
team's pass defense in Saturday's 
27-0 win over New Hampshire. 

The Green held All-Yankee Con- 
ference quarterback Bob Trou- 
ville to four completions. Dart- 
mouth plays Penn State Sjitur- 
day to open its Ivy League sea- 
son.The Quakers nearly upset 
Penn last week losing 19-14. 



Fraternity Notes . . . 

QTV HANDS TKE FIRST 
LOSS OF SEASON 12-6 



QTV beat TKE 12-6 Monday 
night t<} run its winning streak 
to three straight games. The 
game was, without a doubt, one 
of the roughest played this sea- 
son. 

The defensive play of Fred 
"Tank" Purches was the high- 
light <tf the gamo. He crashed 
through the TKE line time after 
time to break up plays behind 
the line of scrimmage, and QTV 
reports that he outplayed the 
much heralded Ron Craven II I 
What say you TKE?? 

Once again, the coniliinatioii of 
Joe O'Keefe passing and Connie 
Rousseau receiving account for 
the two QTV touchdowns. 

A third .scoring attempt by 
QTV was finally halted at the 
TKf! one foot line. 

.lohn tiolda, Jim Kusiakas, Tom 
Dvsyer an<l I>on Brennan also con- 



tributed greatly to the offensive 
push. In addition to Purches, 
Paul Suorsa, Al Phillips, Paul 
Signet and Ed Mochler were out- 
standing on defen.se as evidenced 
by the fact that TKE was held 
to a single t<iuchdown.

INTRAMURALS . 

With the football program well 
into the fourth week of play, the 
I'raternity League still has not 
crystalized into a two or three 
team race. !Monday night to add 
even iriore confusion, QTV 
knocked off second place TKE to 
lighten the teams even closer 
together. 

In the Dorm loop, Baker B 
and Lewis seem to ha'-e an edge 
over the reit of the clubs. Both 
are undefeated although Baker 
B has a tie on its record. The 
loop will be increased to 1 1 teams 
by the end of this week as it has 
been decided to include the Inde- 
pendents in the Dorm League. 
Only four Independent teams 



have filed entries so it has been 
riiK-ided to enter them along with 
the Dorms to make a 14 team 
circuit. This balances both the 
Fraternity and Dorm leajjues off 
with 1 J clubs apiece.

Milk ..,

the dining halls on campus, said, 
"I wanted to supply more milk 
to students in the dining halls 
this year, but this would have 
meant an increase in the cost of 
board to all students." 

So, he continued, it was de- 
cided to let only those students 
who wanted extra milk buy it on 
a pay-as-you-go basis. 

"There will be no change in 
fhe current policy of selling ex- 
tra milk on the line," Mr. Mar- 
tin stressed. 

Milk .Machines Suggested 
Edward Shea, director of 
sports relations, suggested that 
milk machines might be placed 
in the dining Oialls so students 
can buy their extra milk from 
them, thei-eby speeding up the 
lines. 

"At present students must pay 
for extra milk when giving their 
numbers to the checker and it 
creates slow-ups," Shea stated. 

The price of the milk in the 
machines would be the same 
(lOc^), he said, and presumably 
it would be supplied by the same 
dairy as has been selling milk 
to the dining halls recently. 

"This would entail no great 
change in policy, for the Univer- 
sity was buying a fair percen- 
tage of its milk off campus be- 
fore Paige Lab was shut down," 
Shea pointed out.

Dr. Bartlett 
Speaks To 
Pre-Med Club 

by ART KRUPNICK 

Lawrence Bartlett, associate- 
lH.u'.-.,>,,r ,,f zoology at UM, ad- 
dies.sed the first meeting of the 
Pre-.Med Club held las-t night in 
ih>- .Mjddle:sex Room of the Stu- 
<< ■>■ I nion. 

.Some 50 students heard Bart- 
lett, speaking on an "Introduct- 
ion to Medicine", describing the 
university a.s "rank(ing) better 
than 30 per cent in all of the 
600 pre-medical colleges in the 
country." 

Bartli'tt slated that last year 
■■'i .-tudciits 
a.i(niUt'(i u) niiMiiiai schools and 
four rejected; four pre-dental 
studr-nts \v,-n- admitted to dental 
.schools and none were rejected; 
and five pre-veterinarian stu- 
dents were admitted to veterina- 
y i^n schools and unf^ was rejected. 
This makes a total of 21 appli- 
cants admitted and five refusals. 
Bartlett said, "Scholarship, 
honesty, per.'jonality, neatness 
and extra-curricular activities 
are all important aspects in con- 
sidering a student for entrance 
into medical school." 

He added that scholarship is 
"an intellectual curiosity. A 
scholar is a person who is inte- 
resfted in every field of know- 
ledge. .Scholarship implies a cer- 
tain aniuurrt of independence. Me- 
dical schools can only determine 
an individual's independence from 
letters of recommendation from 
the student's professors." 

Following Dr. Bartlett's talk 
there was a question period 
after which refreshments were 
served in the Hampshire Room. 

Charles Khrenberg '58 is pres- 
ident of the Club. Faculty advis- 
ors are William Ross, Dana M.

Library And Science Wings. 
L.A. Building To Be Built 

by JAMES GALVIN 

With the approval of the Massachusetts Legislature of 
a capital outlay appropriation for the University of Massa- 
chusetts exceeding four million dollars, University officials 
are stepping up plans to begin construction of three major 
buildings before Christmas. 

In its closing sessions, the Massachusetts General Court 
approved a budget of $4,234,000. This sum, coupled with a 
June appropriation of $916,000 brings capital expenditures 
to over five million, the highest in university history. 

Utility Development In Plan ~ 



Part of the appropriation cov- 
ered utility development included 
in the University Master Plan. 
Costly installations and reloca- 
tions of utilities will be avoided 
when other new buildings fill 
designated locations within the 
next 10 years. 

During the past four years, 
records show that a total of $16, 
489,000 has been appropriated by 
the legislature for instructional 
plants alone. This amount is 
double the total accumulated cap- 
ital outlay appropriations for 
instructional facilities in the pre- 
vious 91 year historj' of the Uni- 
versity. 

Of the total appropriation, 65 
per cent lies in the field of the 
arts and sciences. This includes 
$2,067,000 for an addition to the 
library; $2,592,656 for a liberal 
arts building and $2,974,304 for 
the second wing of the Science 
Center. The first wing of the 
center, a $1,250,000 section, is 
now under construction. 

Chemistry and Physical 
Education Under Construction 

Current construction includes 
a two and a half million dollar 
chemistry building and the wom- 
en's physical education building, 
$1,921,000. 

Construction already approved 
includes the addition to the li- 
brary, a vegetable garden build- 
ing at $250,000; Reserve Officers 
Training Corps armory and class- 
room building, $400,000 and the 
power plant utilities, $1,500,000. 

.\ breakdown of the recent cap- 
ital outlay appropriation shows 
the following distribution: 1. 
Science Center, second wing, $2,

The Poll 
Bearer 

by JOE TABAK 

Question: What do you think 
of the Student Union and its ac- 
tivities? Can you suggest any 
improvements ? 

JAY QUINN '59 

I think the student Union is 
doing an adequate job. Study 
time of the student may be some- 
what affected by the many ac- 
tivities, but the opportunity to 
socialize is an integral part of 
campus life. 

"MOE" McGRATH '60 

The Student Union is a good 
deal for the students. We need 
a certain amount of recreation 
and the better the organization 
of this recreation, the more we 
enjoy it. The only improvement 
I can think of is the lowering of 
prices. Why not put prices at 
just above cost ? 

DOT TRAVERS '.59 

The Student Union is fulfilling 
its obligations to the student very 
well. There are a couple of minor 
discrepancies though. I think the 
juke box and the prices could 
both be lowered a little. 

MIKE SHERMAN '61 

The Student Union is doing 
vei-j' well as far as Pm concerned. 
There are certainly enough ac- 
tivities. I haven't particularly 
cared for their choice of movies, 
though. They should open the

Woodlands 
Closed By 
FireDanger 

by SUSAN GOLDSTEIN 

All Massachusetts forests and 
v.oodlands have officially been 
ordered closed by Governor Fur- 
colo because of the forest fire 
clanger. The Governor issued his 
decision following the recommen- 
dation of the State Natural Re- 
sources Commissioner. 

The four-month-long drought 
has made wood conditions ex- 
tremely dangerous, and in the 
past few weeks woodland fires 
have burned over thousands of 
acres in Eastern Massachusetts. 

Closing of the state's wood- 
lands to the general public is the 
first step in what could later be- 
come a statewide emergency. 
State civil defense director Thom- 
as Donnelly said his state head- 
quarters and the 22 sector di- 
rectors have been alerted to the 
possibility that they would take 
charge of the forest fire fight if 
conditions grow worse. 

The university is participating 
in the new emergency plan which 
was drawn up two months ago by 
having 10 men per dorm named 
as a liaistin between the adminis- 
tration and CD, In similar emer- 
gencies last year more than 600 
students volunteered to battle a 
ragiii- inv. s! fire that had swept 
out (if control around the town of 
.Miintacrue.

Asiatic Flu 
Hits Williams 
Student Body 

by BARBARA GOLDBERG 

It was repoi-ted by the Wil- 
liams College infiiTnary that over 
25% of tlhe enrollment were bed- 
ridden with Asiatic flu. 

According to Dr. Thomas Van 
Unny, Williams College physi- 
ciaai, cases have appeared there 
at the rate of 25 to 30 per day, 
causing what is called an "ex- 
plosive" epidemic. Over 40 fra- 
tei-nities are bein^g used at the 
piesent time as hospitals. 

At the university there are five 
cases in the infirmary which 
show symptoms of Asiatic flu; 
but since blood tests must be sent 
to Boston and are not returned 
for ten days, the diagnoses are 
not definite. 

Dr. Ernest J. Radcliffe of the 
university said last night, "There 
is nothing for tJhe individual stu- 
dent to worry about. Asiatic flu 
is nothing any student has not 
had a dozen times in his life be- 
fore. It is the same as the fla or 
the common cold. The only 
trouble with t?he flu is that it 
comes in such gi^at numbers at 
the time that it becomes a social 
problem and not so much a medi- 
cal problem. If anything happens 
the university is prepared with 
extra beds and is ready to con- 
vert the small ballroom and if 
necessary, t*he large balhx)om of 
the Student Union into an in- 
firmary." 

Symptoms of Flu 
The symptoms of Asiatic flu 
are a general aching of the body 
and extremities, throat irritation, 
congested nose and dry cough ac- 
companied by occasional nausea 
and vomiting. The illness ap- 
pears suddenly with a fever in 
the beginning. The average in- 
firmary stay is four to six days.

PRENTISS 

Write-ins determined the vic- 
tors in three dorms, as the Sen- 
ate finshed counting the last 
election returns at 12:15 this 
morning. 

James Hirtle, who captured the 
Butterfield election by a landslide 
vote, announced, "I am definitely 
in favor of promoting better stu- 
dent-professor reiatkons." 

The turn-out of the student 
body was far beyond anticipation. 
Senate officials reported, though 
they have not yet figured out the 
actual percentages. 

Thirty-two Senate seats were 
filled by contestants from the 19 
constituencies, and as Gladys 
Bouchard, Election Chairman Pro- 
Tem had predicted, "Write-in 
votes were the essential factor." 
A write-in candidate, Frank 
Cullen, overthrew Richard Glid- 
der, the only announced nominee 
in the Chadbourne election, by a 
24 vote margin. Larry Davidoff, 
Lewis, Harry Lane, Mills, and 
Richard Shea, representing the 
married students, were the other 
write-in winners. 

"Some of the Senate seats 
were literally up for grabs," 
Richard Keogh had claimed 
earlier this week, and despite the 
efforts of 4 write-in candidates 
he grabbed the Greenough elec- 
tion with 97 votes. 

Jubilant over his victory, James 
Hirtle stated he was lOO^r behind 
more closely-knitted cooperation 
between the Senate and campus 
mediums of communication, the 
Collegian and WMUA. 

"I believe the issue concerning 
payment for Collegian editors 
on a scholarship basis should be 
brought up before the Senate 
again," Hirtle continued, ".Many 
points were grossly overlooked 
last semester, including the 
amount of time editors have to 
put in to put out a decent news- 
paper".

THE M ASS ACHISKTTS COLLKCIAN, I UIDAY. OCTOBER 4. 1957 



The Doctor's Not In! 

Last week at around 8:30 in the evening 
a rather troubled looking young student 
walked into a friend's room with his arm 
tied up in a sling. He told his friend that he 
thought his wrist was broken. Well, why 
then, answered the friend, don't you go to 
the infirmary to have it looked at. I've just 
come from there, replied the young man with 
the sling — but the nurse said she wouldn't 
call the doctor unless there was an emer- 
gency. She said that I could stay there over- 
night with ice-packs for the wrist, but that 
I could not have my wrist looked at until 
tomorrow morning when the doctor arrived. 

Good grief, said the friend. A broken 
wrist is an emergency, I'm going to march 
you right back to the infirmary and insist 
that a doctor look at your wrist. And down 
they marched. 

As they were walking up the infirmary 
steps they witnessed the following scene. A 
student who had been injured in a football 
game was being carried through the door 
flat on his back by two of his fraternity 
brothers. The boy had badly wrenched his 
neck, and could not move his head from side 
to side. Again the nurse said she could not 
call the doctor, but added that the boy was 
welcome to stay there overnight, and have 
the doctor see what was wrong in the morn- 
ing. 

This same story greeted our other two 
friends once more, and everyone went back 
to their dormitories. 

Later that night, the boy with the sling 
became so worried about his throbbing wrist 
that he walked all the way down to\\Ti to 
have it looked at by a doctor. The doctor 
x-rayed it, found that it was broken, and 
immediately set it for the boy. Our friend 
then trekked back to campus, a little weary 
Jbut greatly relieved. 

How unfortunate that a situation like 
this has to exist at the university. There are 
3,991 undergraduates registered at UMass, 
plus a few hundred Stockbridge students — 
and after a certain hour in the evening until 
the next morning these students do not even 
have the assurance of a doctor to tend to 
them in the event of an emergency — and 
what are broken wrists and neck injuries but 
emergencies. 

It would indeed be difficult walking to 
the doctor in Amherst with a ruptured ap- 
pendix. — S.J.H.

Morris Of Economics Dept. 
Returns From Copenhagen 

by TED .SHEKUIN 

Mr. B. R- Morris of thp Economics Dppartment has recently re- 
turned from a sabbatical leave which he spent in Denmark studying 
the condition of that country's post-war economy. Your reporter 
caught Mr. Morris just as he was preparing to leave his office last 
night and had a very enjoyable visit with him. 

Morris left campus at the end of first semester last year before 
final exams were even dry on the blue books and sailed for Denmark 
by way of Norway. He was accompanied by Mrs. Morris and their 
three children throughout most of his stay in Europe. 

Upon his arrival in Denmark, Mr. Morris started a program of 
independent study, looking into the development of Danish economy 
since 1945. He used the resources of the University of Copenhagen, 
the Royal Danish Library, and many interviews with bankers, labor 
leaders, government and business officials, and, of course, college 
professors in his research. 

To Talk to IRC 

Mr. Morris is speaking to the International Relations Club on 
October 10 and will concentrate hi.s talk on the economic aspects of 
his studies, so I won't try to anticipate his remarks here other than 
to say that he has described Denmark as a "nation in transition" 
(from an agricultural to an industrial economy) and "the last strong- 
hold of laissez-faire capitalism" despite the socialist program that 
has been in effect since the end of World War II. 

One interesting statistic which would serve to point out the pre- 
dominantly agricultural aspect of Danish life is that they have more 
pigs than people. The main emphasis in the Danish economy is on 
pork and dairy products. However, at the present time the Danes 
have an unfavorable balance of trade because of the restrictive tariffs 
on pork and dairy products in most of the nations where they attempt 
to sell their surpluses. 

Living Conditions 

Mr. Morris's description of the Danish meals is enough to make 
any old Gl chow-hound run down to get a ticket on the next boat. 
Danish meals place much more emphasis on the meat and pastry 
courses than do ours. (Dining Commons take notice!) However, there 
is practically no such thing as a salad in the whole city of Copen- 
hagen, and vegetables are rather difficult to come across. The Danes 
say they get their vitamins from cheese, pastry and beerl 

Transportation in Denmark is very efficient and very cheap. 
Morris .said he paid about $.'^.50 for a pass that was good on any train 
in Copenhagen for a month. Relatively few people drive cars in the 
city, but bicycles are quue popular as they are in most parts of Eu- 
rope. In Copenhagen alone there are over 300,000 two wheelers. 

In Denmark, reports Morris, small apartments are cheaper to 
rent than those in the states, but large apartments are practically 
non-existent, and are therefore quite expensive. 

Friendly To USA 

During his stay in Europe, Mr. Morris was able to take enough 
time off from his studies to mako an cxton.sive trip throughout most 
of western Europe, missing only Italy and Ireland. 

At the end (if mir intorviiw, Morris cxprcHScd the great friond- 
linoss that thr Dnni-li jH-oplc h.ivc for Americans. The Dano.s still

Campus Comment 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(The ideas and opinions ex jrreased in lliif< i oliinin 
are those entirely of Mr. Kominski and do not ne- 
(ts^firily expretta tl » npiiitun of tJie stxiff of tht 
OnXEGlAS.) 

From one controversy to another. We find our- 
selves faced with another problem involving the stu- 
dent senate and the choosing of new representatives. 
I've heard opinion from almost everyone pertaining 
to the method of choosing senators to fill the empty 
senate seats. 

It seems that a good deal of talk has centered 
around the so-called principles of democracy . . . 
namely, "it's the democratic thing to do to hold 
an election that the whole class can vote in." But, 
does the whole class vote in it? Like heck they do! 

If we stop the flag waving for a few minutes 
and think on the subject for a while, you can see 
the benefits of having the class officers choose the 
representatives to the senate. 

First, there is a considerable savings of money 
from such a procedure, not only to the student sen- 
ate but to the candidate as well. The senate saves 
money on printed ballots, posters and such, while 
the candidates save on primarily the same things — 
posters, flyers, and other campaign propaganda. 

In the second place, the class officers are probably 
the best qualified people in the clas.s to choose these 
people. Why? Well, they probably know the can- 
didates better than anyone else in the class in res- 
pect to what that person has done for the class and 
how responsible he or she is when it comes to rep- 
resent the class in the senate. The class officers, 
responsible people themselves, usually possess the 
ability to recognize certain leadership traits in the 
candidates. 

Sure, the democratic way may look like the right 
way, and anything to the contrary may appear to be 
an infringement of students' rights. But how many 
times do students take advantage of their right? 
Just look at the apathy shown in this year's student 
senate elections, and then ask YOURSELF a few 
questions about student rights. 

You can bet that there'll be a lot of disagree- 
ment on this question in future elections and senate 
meetings, but proof usually decides questions of 
this matter. That proof will come at the end of the 
year when we see results of the people that were- 
chosen for the vacant senate seats. 



LETTERS... 

To The Editor . . . 
Thanks, From Joe 

To the Students: 

1 wish all of you had known my roommate, 
Marty Hamilton. He represented everything that 
is GOOD. For me, Marty will never die. 

If he were here, he would probably thank the 
many members of the faculty and the student body 
for their concern over our welfare. Thank you all. 

Sincerely yours, 
Joseph L. Marrino 



Penpal, Anyone? 

To the Editor: 

I saw your address in the Student Times. I will 
be most grateful if you would print my name and 
address in your paper. 

I am a sixteen-year old girl, and am a Japanese 
high school student aspiring to correspond with a 
few girls of about my age. 

My hobbies are: music, collecting postage stamps,

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 4. 1957 



Yankee Conference 



The rebounding Rhode Island 
Rams, which bounced all the way 
from first place in the Yankee 
Conference in 1955 to last place 
in 1956, gave evidence last week, 
through a convincing 25-7 victory 
over Maine, of climbing back to 
the top again in 1957. 

Unleashing a brilliant passing 
combination in sophomore Roger 
Pearson and senior end Bob 
Mairs, plus the fastest set of 
backs in the league, the Rams 
have looked like anything but 
cellar dwellers in their Septem- 
ber victories over Northeastern 
and Maine. 

The Rams clash head on with 
their old nemesis, New Hamp- 
shire, at Kingston this weekend 
in a game which pits Pearson 
against Bobby Trouville, Wild- 
cat quarterback who led the con- 
ference in passing last year. 

The Cats were not impressive 
in their opener at Dai'tmouth last 
week, losing 27-0, although Trou- 
ville completed a 75-yard touch- 
down pass which was nullified by 
an offside penalty. 

Generally speaking it was a 
black Saturday for Yankee Con- 
ference teams last week. Not 
only did New Hampshire lose to 
Dartmouth, but Chas. O'Rourke's 
undermanned Massachusetts elev- 
en was crushed by BU 66-6, and 
Connecticut was trampled by 
Yale, 27-0, for the second straight 
UConn defeat. 



The only Conference team to 
sparkle in non-league play Sat- 
urday was a sophomore-studded 
University of Vermont eleven 
which stunned a veteran Union 
club 26-6 at Burlington. 

Ed Donnelly will test these 
rookie speed merchants against 
Maine at Orono this week and 
Catamount hopes are high for 
their second victory in 14 games 
against their Northern New Eng- 
land rival. 

While New Hampshire is at 
Rhode Island, and Vermont is at 
Maine, the twice-beaten Huskies 
of Connecticut will visit New- 
Brunswick, N.J. for a tilt with 
the improving Scarlet of Rutgers. 
Last year the UConns trounced 
Rutgers 27-7, but the latter 
showed a stubborn streak in hold- 
ing Princeton to a 7-0 margin 
last week. An early season in- 
jury to halfback Lenny King has 
virtually shackled the Connecti- 
cut offense and much depends up- 
on the condition of the Nauga- 
tuck flash. 

Ma.ssachusetts takes a day off 
after successive defeats at the 
hands of AIC and BU, as 
O'Rourke tries to rally his forces 
for their invasion of Storrs next 
week for their first Conference 
test against Connecticut. Last 
year the UConns belted the Red- 
men by a record 71-6 score and 
the Bay Staters have a strong 
revenge motive as they prepare 
for this one. 



SOCCER TEAM LOOKS 
FOR SECOND WIN 



THE UMass varsity soccer 
team travels to Worcester to- 
morrow in an attempt to gain 
its second win of the young sea- 
son at the expense of Worcester 
Tech, 

The Redmen, fresh from their 
opening game triumph over the 
Coast Guard Academy, will try 
to use this game as a spring 
board for a real tough two week 
stretch playing five strong teams 
in a row. W.P.I. , who played the 
university to a 1-1 deadlock last 
fall, will be seeing its first action 
of the j-ear. The Engineers are 
hard to rate, due to the fact that 
freshmen are eligible to play var- 
sity bail there; thus, they are 
unpredictable from year to year. 

Most positions are up for 
grabs for tomorrow's game. Dick 
Soofield, who started last game 
at goalie, may be moved out by 
last year's frosh captain Dick 
Williams. Much competition is 
also in store for the halfback 
berths with sophomore Charlie 
Repeta, defensive star of the first 
game, Bernie (Joclowski, Art 
Caron, Larry Treadwell, and ver- 



satile Charlie Leverone all in the 
running. 

Speedy Billy Burke, star of 
the UMass win of a week ago, 
will be at the center forward 
position, while Paul Mailman, 
John Poignand, and Fred Walker 
are battling for the wing posi- 
tions. Walker tallied the winning 
goal last week. Four more sophs, 
Bill Harris, Grant Bownu n Ed 
Robinson, Dave Brenneke, are 
fighting for the inside position 
along with Fred losue and "Red" 
McCarthy. 

The real battle will be delayed 
for one game. Jerry Steinberg 
and George Lust, both sophs, are 
having a dog tight to earn the 
fullback iK>sition to play next to 
captain Joe Morrone. Steinberg, 
who set up Walker for the win- 
ning goal, along with Joe Field, 
will not be able to play due to 
the observance of the high holi- 
days. 

For tho.se UMies who are in- 
terested in seeing a hustling 
UMass team and also a good 
game, the game will begin at 
\ : 50 at Worcester.

Varsity Sports 



Even with no varsity football 
game scheduled for the weekend 
of Oct. 5, it is still an active 
day on the sports calendar with 
the varsity cross country and 
soccer teams in action. In addi- 
tion, the Stockbridge football 
team opens its season with a 
home game. 

The 1957 edition of the cross 
country team may be one of the 
best yet produced by coach Wil- 
liam Footrick. The Redmen have 



a number of lettermen returning 
and several capable sophomores 
help provide the team with the 
all-ai-ound balance necessai*y to 
win. Co-Captains Lee Chisholm 
and Peter Schwarz have been 
impressive in early time trials. 
Veterans Donald Madera, Thom- 
as Flynn, and Donald Hoerde 
know their way around the 
course. Newcomers Jim Kellon 
and Pete Conway figure to help. 
The team gets its first test

Fraternity Notes 

SIG EP BEATS ALPHA SIG 

Sig Ep rolled over Alpha Sig, 
3r.-0, Monday night, on its way 
to its third victory of the season 
without a defeat. The Sig Ep 
passing attack was running in 
high gear as Gerry Tuttle passed 
for four touchdowns. The playing 
of sophomores Art Dorety and 
Pete Romano was outstanding in 
the Sig Ep victory. 

SIG EP OVER PHI SIGMA 
DELTA 

Everyone joined in the scoring 
act for Sig Ep as they romped 
over Phi Sigma Delta by a score 
of 54-0. Art Dorety scored 27 
points in a pass-catching role as 
the blocking of Pete Romano con- 
tinued to prove essential to the 
Sig Ep team. 

SIG EP BEATS Q.T.V. 

In a hard fought game Wed- 
nesday night, Sig Ep chalked 
up its fifth consecutive victory by 
downing Q.T.V., 12-0 Passes from 
Bob Mann to Art Dorety and 
from Gerry Tuttle to Bob Mann 
provided the scoring plays as the 
Sig Ep aerial attack continued 
to prove its worth. The crashing 
line play of Dave Rehbein and 
Pete Romano hurried the Q.T.V. 
passes and the defense of Mann, 
Tuttle, and Doherty picked off 
several passes to end Q.T.V. 
threats. Romano's offensive 
blocking again proved to be a 
contributory factor in the team 
play of Sig Ep. The pass-catch- 
ing of Mai Rice and Harry Spi- 
liotis is not to be overlooked in 
sizing up the all-around hustle 
of Sig Ep. 

TKE REMAINS UNDEFEATED 

TKE rolled over Alpha Gam, 
30-0 Wednesday night to gain 
its fourth win of the season. Pass 
interceptions proved to be the 
big faccor in the game as they 
accounted for one touchdown and 
set up three others. Ron Craven 
and John Morris were the out- 
standing stars of the evening, 
both offensively and defensively. 



—CORRECTION— 

TKE would like to report « 
slight inaccuracy in the score of 
the TKE-QTV game. The game 
was not a 12-6 QTV victory, bwt 
a 6-6 tie. 



Newman Club 

There will be an outing of the 
Newman Club on Saturday, Oc 
tober 12th. More detaila will be 
given at next Tuesday's meeting, 
at which Monseignor Stapleton

I.R.C. Hears 
Morrison 
And Tidmon 

On Thursday evening at 7:30 
p.ni. the International Relations 
Club pi-esented a program on 
Scandinavia in the Barnstable 
Room of the Student Union. 

Miss Allison Tidman of Scan- 
dinavian Seminiirs opened the 
program with a short talk on 
scholarship opportunities in Scan- 
dinaxnan rolleges and univer- 
sities for American graduate and 
undergrraduate students. 

Following Miss Tidman's ad- 
dress, Bruce Morris, Professor 
of Economics at the university, 
spoke to the club on "Post War 
Danish Economy." Morris has re- 
cently returned from a six montfti 
visit to Denmark. He describes 
the country as "the last strong- 
hold of laissez-faire economics" 
despite the fact tljat Denmark 
has had a socialist economy since 
shortly after World War II.

JOAN DAFFINEE '59 

I think that the variety of ac- 
tivities certainly meets the diver- 
sified interests of the students. 
I can't think of anything to im- 
prove the already excellent sta- 
tvis of the activities. 

RAY GRANDCHAMP '58 

I think they have a very well 
rounded program. They offer just 
about everything for everybody. 
The only exception is that they 
should have more cultural activ- 
ities. Music and art discussion 
groups would 'be a fine start. Also 
they should change the exhibits 
in the small ballroom more often. 

CHARLIE LEVERONE '59 

I don't spend too much time 
at the Union, but there's enough 
here for nic. They ought to pub- 
licize their events more and make 
shorter tournaments. Also they 
could organize the tournaments 
better, giving specific times and 
dates for competition. 



lA Club Meets 

At the Thursday meeting of 
the Industrial Administration 
Club held in the Student Union, 
Professor William O'Donnell was 
elected advisor for the coming 
year. 

Also elected were Co-chairmen 
Dave Bailey and Don Marchese. 

The club is also planning an 
interesting program of speakers, 
trips, and discussions.

and universities will be increas- 
ingly subject to criticism for fail- 
ing to do their share in meeting 
the demand created by the in- 
crease in application for admis- 
sion to colleges and graduate 
schools. 

The members of the committee 
were principally concerned with 
setting up cooperative activity 
at fhe undergraduate level, which 
is a most complex undertaking. 

Some of the handicaps they 
had to consider were the differ- 
ences of accounting systems, the 
problem of transporting students, 
discrepancies in the scheduling of 
classes, and the lack of uniform- 
ity in salai-y scales and provis- 
ions for tenure. 

In addition to the existing 
practice of borix)wing instructors 
to meet an emergency and send- 
ing students to otflier institutions 
for some special course needed,

Flu ... 

(Continued from page 1) 

Ten caaes of Asiatic flu have 
been reported at Amherst Col- 
lege. Dr. Stephen Brown, College 
Physician, indicated that there is 
a "great probability that an epi- 
demic of Asian flu will strike the 
campus within the next few 
days." The managing editor of 
the Amherst Student said that he 
suspects that Williams Colleige 
students staying at Amherst for 
week-end dating at nearby col- 
l^res, will add to the spreading 
of the flu. 

Smith College has reported no 
cases of the flu. The physician at 
Mt. Holyoke College reported 16 
cases of a "mild respiratory in- 
fection" by October second, and 
could not be contacted for fur- 
ther information.

Tuesday night, the three new 
teams in the Dorm League will 
make their debut with two of 
them tackling each other and the 
thii-d meeting Greenough. 

A concession to Friday night 
jjarty-goers has been made due 
to the early start this year in 
that no Friday night games have 
been sche(lule<l in either league. 
Barring a run of bad weather 
there will be no need for any 
Friday night action and the loops 
will be finished in plenty of time 
for playoffs before the New

to revise his estimate of the team 
and say now that there is no one 
in sight that will beat them. Not 
only have they continued unde- 
feated and untied, but they have 
not even been scored upon yet. 
That is a most remarkable feat 
in six man touch football. 

John "The Mouse" Bitetti is 
stealing the thunder from the 
tall, rangy ends in both leagues 
as he remains in the top spot in 
the scorers parade. The little 
speedster from LCA with the 
glue-tip fingers keeps wheeling 
across the goal line with clock- 
like regularity.

Senate To King Out The Old 
And Welcome All The New 

by SALLY KANE 

Next Wednesday night will be the first meeting for the 
newly elected Senators; it will also be the last for the out- 
going Senators. 

A few necessary committees will be set up Wednesday 
night. Also all Senators will be requested to fill out forms 
pertinent to serving on the various committees. 

The appointments, based on the 
information in these forms, will 
take place after the election of 
officers a week from Wednesday. 

President pro tempore, Michael 
Donovan, said that the Senate 
"has much business to accom-

The first part of Wednesday's

Then a Coffee Hour will follow 
which will serve to acquaint the

Next the incoming Senators 
will be sworn in by David Worth-

The business order will follow. 

in regard to the elections a 
week from Wednesday, Donovan 
ad\-ises all new Senators to talk 
to the old Senators, thus becom-

tive candidates for office. Then 
check around their dorms, talk 
to their friends, and find out their 
qualifications for office. By this 
means, the Senators will "not go 
in cold and will elect people 
worthy of the trust placed in 
them."

Russia Shoots Moon 
First; US Disturbed 
Over Soviet Vietory 

by CHRIS IVUSIC 

The opening of a new era of 
space travel has been all but 
overlooked by top US military 
and diplomatic officials who are 
in controversy over w'hy Russia 
beat America in launching the 
first man-made satellite. 

Russia's launching of the sat- 
ellite, "twice the size of a basket- 
ball, proves she has a big mili- 
tary rocket," said US Satellite 
Chief John Hagen. 

Washington spokesmen, refer- 
ing to t'he missiles race, called 
Russia's "victory" a "notable 
l>ropaganda victory . . They've 
done it and nothing like it can 
evei- happen again." 

Meanwhile, scientists and pro- 
fessional and amateur radio op- 
erators are tracking the satellite 
by radio signals. A Smithsonian 
Obsei-vatory spokesman stated 
that the missile "will be seen 
over the US in two or three 
weeks." Phe visibility apparent- 
ly depends on the inclination of 
its orbit. 

Smithsonian astronomers are 
stationed in Cambridge and are 
tracking the artificial moon, it 
was leaimed from the Hai*vard 
Crhnson.

LITTLE ROCK: AN 
AMERICAN CRISIS 

During the last few weeks the nation 
has been in a state of shock because of the 
racial terrorism emanating from the south- 
ern city of Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Every day the newspapers are filled with 
accounts and pictures of the frightening, 
almost unreal spectacle that is unfolding 
in this American city — pictures of mob vio- 
lence, of prejudice, of cruelty. Perhaps 
nothing has seemed quite so frightening as 
the pictures of grim U.S. troops, their bay- 
onets fixed, guarding the public high school 
while a handful of somber and courageous 
negro students file past them into the school 
building. We say to ourselves, "This can't 
happen here . . . not in America." As night- 
marish, as unbelievable as the Little Rock 
crisis seems, it is unfortunately very real. 
It is happening here — here in a country 
which takes great pride in its long heritage 
of freedom, and liberty, and justice. 

Concern With Our Reputation . . . 

Perhaps because of this great pride which 
Americans feel for their homeland, the first 
concern of the average American is with the 
damage that the Little Rock crisis will bring 
to our reputation abroad, and the food it will 
provide for the Communist propagandists. 
This same principle applies to the common 
reaction of a family when one of its mem- 
bers has done something to sully its good 
name. Their concern is more with "what will 
"the neighbors think," than with the question 
of right and wrong. They seem to think that 
the deed would be "less wrong" if fewer 
people knew about it. This, though a com- 
mon reaction, is unfortunate. 

... Rather Than With What Is Right 

Perhaps we, as Americans, are somewhat 
guilty of this feeling, the President included. 
Perhaps in his speech to the American pub- 
lic he should have placed less emphasis on 
the damage that Little Rock will cause us 
abroad, and more on the fact that the action 
of the federal government in this crisis was 
to uphold what it believes to be right. Fed- 
eral troops were not called to the scene pri- 
marily to bring an end to the violence, but 
rather to uphold the law of the land, to de- 
fend the principle that all men are equal 
under the law. 

The real crisis is not "what the neigh- 
bors think," the real crisis is not the person 
of the hill-billy political opportunist, Faubus, 
and his trouble-shooting henchmen. The real 
crisis at Little Rock is the fate of the ideal 
of justice, of objective right, as it is em- 
bodied in the law of the land. It is this that 
our grim-faced troops are defending, and 
not our reputation. — S.J.H.

by STAN RUSEK 

(Joe Roberge is a married sophomore student. This in itself is 
not unusual. The fact that he is almost totally blind and in .spite of 
this is an excellent student is what makes Joe's story an unusual and 
interesting one.) 

The first awareness which is experienced by anyone who meets 
Joe is the feeling that he has complete command of the situation. 
After knocking, I entered his room and asked for an interview. He 
readily assented, and I excused myself in order to pick up a pencil 
and some paper. While I was still mumbling my excuses he walked 
over to his desk, reached for a pencil, and handed it to me. Method- 
ically he went through the same procedure and handed me some paper. 
I couldn't help but admire the tenacity which allowed Joe to mem- 
orize the correct distance from one piece of furniture to the other. 

Joe was not born blind, and this accounts for his ability to dis- 
cuss and appreciate colors. He readily visualizes the primary colors 
and he is able to create in his mind new color combinations such as 
orchid from pink and purple. 

His eyesight began to fade at an early age until at fourteen he 
was unable to follow a line or read. At fifteen he was taken to a doc- 
tor and the cause of his blindness was determined as degeneration 
of the retina. Joe explains his blindness as an inability of the eye to 
focus. "Like a camera," he said, "if it doesn't focus, it can't take 
pictures." All doctors who have examined him have described the 
hopelessness of the situation. At present he can only see shadings. 
At night a bright street light will be seen as a small glow. 

Loss of sight did not curb his activities. He always believed that 
a life of self pity was not for him. In explaining this belief, he ex- 
pressed the desire that he would never react to this situation like 
many handicapped people who often sit back in a chair and give up, 
saying the world is not for them. The importance of an education 
parallels his feeling of "playing the game of life" as he expressed it. 
"If I don't get an education I will be forgotten. I must live with 
myself, therefore I can't sit back and be a nothing." 

Religion plays an important role in Joe's life. He believes that 
trusting God helps him to overcome any handicap. "Blindness is not 
a handicap," he said, "unless you allow it to be one." 

His ultimate ambition is "to teach the blind that they can do it.** 
He hopes to accomplish this by working towards a Master's Degree 
in sociology. After attaining this. Joe will do rehabilitation work 
with the blind until he acquires a feeling for their thought processes. 
Eventually he would like to do work in research. 

After the darkness of total blindness over-shadowed his life, he 
was enrolled in the Perkins Institute for the Blind in Watertown, 
Massachusetts. Here he taught himself to cope with the many situa- 
tions of the blind. Joe interrupted the interview here to tell me of an 
incident that happened at the Institute. On George Washington's 
Birthday one year the Perkins Institute held open house and every- 
one's parents were there for the occasion. Joe explained how aggra- 
vating some of the questions that people ask can be. One elderly 
lady asked one of the boys how he could eat. She couldn't under- 
stand how he could coordinate his hands and guide them to his mouth 
without seeing. "Well, it's this way," explained one boy (and I'm in- 
clined to think it was Joe). "Whrn we first enroll in the Institute 
we are required to have metal fillings placed at the hack of our teeth. 
The forks are maj:nctized and when we bring them up to our mouths 
they automatically are attracted to the metal." A few days later the 
Dean of Perkins Institute received a telephone call from a rather 
Irate woman. Needless to say the whole student body was informed 
of the importance of being nice to "normal people." 

Joe actually beamed when Iw spoke of the years of his life spent 
with "Pop" W.M'd.v. His brother-in-law was engajred in some r.pair 
work at the We«d.v home when .loe decided to tap along one day. 
"Pop. better known an Robert Weedy, was once a star baritone for 
the Melrnpolitan Opna ( ompany. He now teaches voice and immedi- 
ately became friends with Joe. He invited him to live with his family 
and taught him music and voice. Eventually Joe taught voice, assist, 
ing "Pop," as he fondly calls him. 

(I'ovtiinnd in mrl lolumn) 



During this period of his life Joe had a chance 
to come in contact with outstanding technical vocal- 
ists. Among the greats encountered in Pop's studio 
were Mario Lanza, Johnny Alexander, and Earl 
Wrightson. Mr. Weedy himself is the present lead- 
ing man in the Broadway musical, "Most Happy 
Fella." 

Joe is a veteran of the stage himself. He has 
sung on radio and TV shows and given numerous 
concerts and recitals. He has played with the Mu- 
sical Marionettes show, and has sung for a time 
with the well-known Sauter Finnegan Band. Joe ex- 
pressed his desire to keep singing. "It's hard to 
learn to sing, and you can rationalize all you want 
to, but when you have stage fright you can't do 
anything else except go out there and sing." 

Joe's hobby, of all things, is cooking. He is able 
to bake pies and cook full course meals. 

The campus is wonderful, he said, commenting 
on Umie life. Everyone is nice from the Registrar 
through the faculty to the students— especially stu- 
dents like Bob Armstrong and Bob Amirault who 
often walk to class with him. 

Joe's studying is done by reviewing lecture notes 
which he takes in Braille. ■:eading courses are cov- 
ered by students who read his assignments to him. 
Records of dramatic works are played back on a 
portable phonograph which is in his room. 

Joe expressed his belief that no other campus 
can possibly be as friendly as ours. He feels that past 
experience allows him to judge the atmosphere found 
here and he has yet to meet anyone who is not will- 
ing to help. 

Finally, Joe is a strong believer in the saying, 
"God helps those who help themselves." Joe says 
he would like to show others that college is possible 
for the blind. "People here have helped me to re- 
new faith in mankind. My attitude has changed, and 
I believe I will be able to do things for others. 

One cannot help being moved when Joe expresses 
his thoughts in the profundity of the following 
statement— "God sent me here and he also sent four 
thousand other people to help me. I have many 
things and everything I need. It's just wonderful." 



LETTERS . . . 

Acuracy, Acuracy. . . 

To the editor: 

Heard a little story on the grapevine the other 
day. 

It seems this certain sports editor was a bit 
hard pressed for a screaming headline to highlight 
his World Series story. 

So whirling around in his swivel chair at 1 in 
the morning he piped up to the other 7 Collegian 
reporters present, "All those in favor of the Yan- 
kees winning the pennant, raise your hands!" 

Two did. 

"I assume the rest of you are fans of the Braves " 
he ventured. ' 

They nodded their heads. 

"Fine, fine," he gloated, "5 to 2 in favor of the 
Braves." 

Hence, the headline: "UMIES PREDICT 
BRAVES TO WIN." 

Ah, acuracy, acuracy, acuracy! 

Perhaps this explains the success of a certain 
sports editor as a key man on the Collegian. 

But then what else can you expect when he has 
had to put out all three sports pages a week ever 
since September. And all just because students 
dont show up to answer the Collegian's need for 
writers. 

I know I'd be more cooperative if I were a stu- 
dent. But as it is, I'm just one of the night watch- 
men over here at the Student Union. Many a night 
reading the Collegian, particularly the cosmopolitan 
sports page, has kept me awake. 

Sincerely, 
Rog Parker 



A Svnator^s Thanks 

To the editor: 

I would like to lake this opportunity to thank all 
those who supported me in the recent Senate 
election.

Football Results 

NEW ENGLAND 



by DON BAM FORD 

Bill Footrick's cross country team, with a display of 
depth and spirit, walloped Northeastern University placing 
five men in the first six places. The harriers' successful de- 
but showed a potential strength that could set them on top 
as New England Champions. Tom Tomasian, who finished 
first in the field of fifteen, offered the only serious competi- 
tion for the Redmen. ■ 

Tomasian, who had a finishing 
time of 23:15 outran Lee Chis- 
holm by only 15 seconds. Lee was 
followed by Dick Atkinson, Pete 
Swartz, Jim Wrynn, Don Medara. 

Jim Keelon, who was expected 
to be the first Redman, or close 
to the first to cross the finish 
line, had to drop out of the race 
due to a stomach cramp. 

Bill Knowlton, who has been 
a couple of weeks behind in train- 
ing: did not have his usual pep for 
this meet. But give Bill a couple 
of more weeks and he'll be a 
month behind in his training. 
FAIR PLAY 

Coming into the home stretch 
Tomasian led Chisholm by about 
40 yards, when Tomasian took a 
wi^ng turn. Lee, as a really fine 
gesture of fair play guided 
Tomasian back onto the course 
giving him the same distance 
advantage he held before he ran 
off the course. 

Murray Watt, former UMass 
student, now running for N.U. 
finished tenth in the race. 

"Toothless" Jim Wrynn gave a 
sterling performance, this past 
Saturday, considering that he has 
been out to practice for only the 
past two weeks. Jim could give 
the older varsity members quite 
a bit of competition later on this 
year. 

Pete Conway managed to place 
edghth in the field despite a swol- 
len ankle w*hich slowed him down 
considerably. 

FROSH SHOW FIGHT 
Under the able tutelage of 
Frosh ooach Justin Cobb, the 
little Redmen outclassed the 
Huskies individually placing 
three men in the top four posi- 
tions. 

Ralph Buschman finished the 
3.6 mile course in 19:21, only 
five seconds off the best UMass 
freshman time last year. 

"Emo" Barron and Ralph Flint 
fancy-stepped the course to cop 
the third and fourth spots res- 
pectively. 

Coach Justin Cobb is expected 
to bring up the rear of the team 
to better times and this will give 
the frosh the extra boost for a 
victory in their next contest 
which comes on October 16, when 
Mount Hemnon invades the cam- 
pus. 

The next varsity meet will be 
against Union College of Sche- 
nectady N.Y. this Wednesday 
October 9, at 3:30. . . finish is 
at the south end of Alumni Field.

Stockbridge footballers ojK'ned 
their season on Alumni Field last 
Saturday with a 20-n victnvy .i\cr 
Thayer Academy. 

This was only the second time 
in five tries that the Aggies have 
beaten Thayer. 

Darrel "Rabitt" N'owers, a 
watch pocket sized quarterback 
was credited with one TD and 
one point after for seven, while 
Andy Knowles scored two times 
and collected one PAT for the 
other 13 points. 

The third Stockbridge tally, 
which came in the fourth period 
was set up by a sparkling 45 yard 
punt return by Bob Pikul. 

In the second period Thayer 
scored their lone TD of the day 
on a 60 yard pass play from Pan- 
ter to Hughes.

Coach Lany liiijrKs' hooters 
traveled to Worcester Saturday 
afternoon and returned home 
with their 2nd straight victory. 
The victory was a 6-2 win over 
W.P.I. 

There were several playcj-s who 
were outstanding in helping to 
bring this win home. Speedy Bil- 
ly Burke once again spearheaded 
the UMass attack with some 
very able assistance from Paul 
Mailman. These two accounted 
for 2/2 of the Redmen score with 
2 goals apiece. Coach Briggs said 
that Mailman played the best 
game that he has ever seen him 
play. The halfbacks, Bernie Goc- 
lowski, Charlie Repeta, and Web 
Cutting all played an outstand- 
ing gan^e. Captain Joe Morrone 
was a veritable stone wall at 
fullback. John Poignand also 
booted one home while playing 
one of the best games of his col- 
lege career. 

Late in the second quarter 
when Ben Doherty scored the 
fourth UMass goal, the assist 



given him by Fred Walker was 
the play of the game. 

In this same quarter Coach 
Briggs had many of his prom- 
ising sophs in the game. It was

A Campus-to-Career Case History 




Bill Tyer discusses features of a training program for operators with Miss Edith Sanders. 

"There's always something different" 



"In my job, there's always something 
different coming along— a new problem, 
a new challenge. When I got out of col- 
lege I wanted to make sure I didn't settle 
down to a job of boredom. There's never 
been a chance of that at Bell." 

That's Charles W. (Bill) Tyer talking. 
Bill graduated from Texas Christian Uni- 
versity in 1953 with a B.S. in Commerce. 
He went right to work with Southwestern 
Bell in Fort Worth. 

How did he make his choice? Here's 
what he says: "From what I'd seen it was 
an interesting business with tremendous 
room for expansion. And a big feature 
with me was the i)|»|»ortunity to choose 
my btralion. I wanted to work in the 
Fort W orth area. 



"I came in under the Staff Assistant 
Program for college graduates. I s{)ent 
several weeks in each of the company's 
five departments. Then I went back for 
six months of intensive training in our 
Traffic Department. 

"After training, I was promoted. One 
of my first jobs 'vo^ setting up and super- 
vising a CUP* . se rvice improvement 
program. iMj^^^b 

"In January, 1956, I was again pro- 
moted. My present job is assistant to the 
District Traffic Supierintendent. Mv re- 
sponsibilities include instruction of I'BX 
operators, employee and public relations, 
and schediding operators to handle calls 
to and from 185,(K)<) telephones. 

"No— there's no chance for boretlom!" 



Bill Tyer Is typical of the many young men who are 
finding their careers in the Bell System. Other inter* 
esting careers exi^l in ihe Bell Telephone (lompanies. 
Bell Telephone Lahomtories, Western Electric and 
Sandia Corporation. Your placement officer has more 
inforinalion ahout these companies.

eat to be a member, was born on campus yesterday after- 
noon in the Suffolk Room of the Student Union. Called the 
"Toastmaster's Club" by its two founders, William Scott, 
SU Director and Bertram Silk '58, it will continue to meet 
every two weeks, depending on how many UMies want to 
speak between bites of an inexpensive meal, on any subject 
or campus issue. 

Put into action by Silk to encourage public speaking,. 

the club brought together 13 students; Miss Marilyn Gross,

the Flint Lab and apples from

added to the nionus. 

Dining hours have also been 
changed to accommodate those 
students nho had found it hard 
to have lunch and make their 
classes as well. Lighter noon 
meals in some cases are the re- 
sult of action through group re- 
quests to Dean of Women and 
in cooperation with the dining 
hall. As in the past it is hoped 
that there will be a number of ex- 
change suppers and dorm ban- 
quets through the year. 

Despite these changes in policy, 
there are still coniplaint.s of a 
minor sort, one of which being 
tha' 111' lilts should l)e p<»sted in 
advance. 

This idea has been rejected on 
the grounds that a student, not- 
ing something he dislikes, would 
skip the meal altogether, instead 
of going, and at least eating 
something. 

Antither complaint, that of 
football players cutting into the 
line at the Commons, ha.s al- 
ready been dealt with. Coni- 
plaint.s of slow toa.<t service in 
Crecnough has ivsnltrMl in the in-

The sm<M>th way in which the 
dining hall operation has b<»gun 
this year has been attributed to 
student cooperation, fine admini- 
strative planning, and the ability 
of the student workers.

A UMIE MYSTERY 

A mystery is afoot in the land of Umies. 

It seems that clubs are more exclusive 
than ever this year. The following card post- 
marked Amherst was received recently by 
numerous students on campus soliciting 
membership to an undisclosed organization: 

"Your name has been submitted to us 
again this term. We are pleased to inform 
you of our decision to grant the 'privileges 
of the organization to you at this time. 

"Your membership card will bear receipt 
of your annual dues of ten dollars, due on 
or before November h, J 957." 

It will be a red-faced secretary that real- 
izes his mistake, or a grim-faced treasurer 
that takes account on November 4th. 

Good gi'ief — such irresponsibility. 

Any clues to the identity of this mysteri- 
ous organization should be turned in to the 
mail box (the red orange crate by the win- 
dow) in the Collegian office. A few of our 
editors have been taking correspondence 
courses from Scotland Yard and they are 
eager to realize their newly acquired sleuth- 
ing techniques. (Exhibitionists, the lot of 
them.)

A UMIE SALUTE 

This is a salute to Lee Chisholm, cross 
country star at the university. 

In a recent track event with Northeast- 
em, just as Chisholm and Tomasian (from 
Northeastern) were coming into the home 
stretch, Tomasian, who was in the lead, took 
a wrong turn. In a very fine expression of 
sportsmanship, UM's Chisholm brought his 
opponent back on the right course, allowed 
him to carry the same lead he had had prior 
to the "wrong turn," and the race was re- 
sumed. 

- Chisholm, who could have taken advan- 
tage of Tomasian's mistake, eventually lost 
the race by a margin of 15 seconds. How- 
ever, in our book, Chisholm did not lose — 
he was very much a winner. 

Hats off to Mr. Chisholm for his fine 
sportsmanship ! 



A UMIE SOLUTION 

We have discovered a new short-cut for 
those who love to walk on the grass. Lazy 
Umies can now trip the light fantastic 
across the Mung on the College Pond. Long 
live the Mung Patrol! 



(There will be a meeting of the editorial 
staff PROMPTLY at 6:30 p.m. tonight in 
the Collegian office. This will be the last 
official cUiss conducted by the editorial editor. 
The subject of this final meeting will be 
"How to Make Up a Page in One Easy Les- 
son." — Ed.)

To thp Editor: 

Now starts the crucifixion, 
stated Governor Orval Faubus a 
few days ago. He was referring 
to a situation in which the Presi- 
dent of tl.e United States found 
it necessary to employ the use of 
federalized National Guardsmen 
to insure the integration of 9 
Negro students into previously 
all-white Central High School in 
Little Rock, Arkan.sas. Many in- 
teresting quotations and a num- 
ber of disgraceful incidents have 
arisen from this federal action. 

The first day of troop partici- 
pation produced a situation Gov. 
Faubus likened to Hitlerite Ger- 
many — armed guards with rifles 
and dra\\T» bayonets not only out- 
side the school but within as well. 
Printed reports have emanated 
from Little Rock to the effect that 
"an unarmed citizen had his Head 
cracked by a rifle butt." Other 
newspaper accounts tell of one 
teenager being stabbed in the arm 
with a bayonet and related also 
a case where "three or more citi- 
zens were pushed down the street 
with bayonets at their throats." 
Abashed, one asks, is this Ameri- 
can democracy? 

These results would seem to 
verify the fact that as Gov. Mar- 
vin Griflin of Georgia has stated, 
the use of force here was a dras- 
tic mistake, and would demand 
immediate withdrawal of federal 
troops. 

But here too, unfortunately, 
has arisen a misunderstanding, 
and at the moment we are faced 
with an impasse. 

For this situation Faubus lays 
the blame squarely on the Presi- 
dent's shoulders stating that rem- 
iniscent of his war days Eisen- 
hower is asking for "complete 
surrender" on a delicate issue and 
is demanding, in effect, the Ar- 
kansas leader "completely give up 
. . . (his) power as governor of 
the state," thus setting a danger- 
ous and dictatorial principle ap- 
plicable to ail governors and 
every state. 

Arthur Krock of the New York 
Times wonders perhaps if the 
fault for this snafu doesn't lie 
in what could be termed the Pres- 
ident's stubborn rejection of the 
governor's pacification overtures 
to the effect that the order of 
the Federal Court would not be 
obstructed, by him, and that, as 
always, he would assume the res- 
ponsibility for maintaining law 
and order. The President stipu- 
lated that either full assurances 
or the finality of peaceful integra- 
tion, itself, would be necessary 
before the troops would be re- 
called. The statement by Faubus 
wasn't accepted in the best graces 
of White House circles, and Krock 
a.sks, isn't Eisenhower quibbling. 

In not accepting "these moder- 
ate face-saving semantics" isn't 
he refuting one of his owm max- 
ims in not allowing the enemy an 
avenue of retreat and by his 
adamant attitude demanding as 
Faubus states unconditional sur- 
render and implicitly the "death 
sentence" for this man's political 
ambitions? 

This is one view of the tense 
troop situation and resultant 
stalemate. 

Another line of reasoning at- 
tribute.s the cause of federal in- 
tervention directly to the line of 
action instituted by th^ governor 
in placing state troops around 
the srhool to repel negroes. The 
people who argue in this vein 
point out that in assuming office 
tho President repeatedly reiter- 
atod that even under the most 
advfiso circumstances, ho bolieved 
hi' wniild iic\p|- iicM'd rri'durse 
to armed integration. Thry go on 
to ptato th.nt ho hold off until the 
last po>v;ihli^ oTo!iicnt, until tho 
situation hoiili nd on anarchy, ho- 
fore acting. 




A Slam At Sullivan ^s Slogan . . . 



The President has always nur- 
tured the "nice guy" approach 
and this plus a deep-seated con- 
fidence in the integrity and basic 
goodness of all individuals, even 
Faubus. In the latter case, they 
say his trust was misplaced. No 
dunce, they go on, Ei.senhower 
was painfully aware of the conno- 
tations of a military man utiliz- 
ing armed force. They cry that 
the President's arm was twisted 
and condemnation for present de- 
velopments rests ultimately with 
the occupant of the highest honor 
Arkansas has to bestow. In this 
camp can be found most of the 
Northern editorialists, politicians, 
governors (Leader, Furcolo) and, 
of course, the White House itself. 

As to the withdrawal of the 
air-borne combat team, Eisen- 
hower desires unequivocal assur- 
ances of compliance with court 
orders from Faubus. Concerning 
the recent Faubus conciliatory 
statement the President rejected 
it as too weak, and cast asper- 
sions on the integrity of the man 
himself. Cries were raised not only 
among the northern governors 
against Faubus but at the recent 
conference of the southern guber- 
natorial leaders protests wore 
raised stating that the Little Rock 
situation was the re.sult of a pol- 
itical opportunist who used the 
southern governors and the Pres- 
ident for personal advancement. 
The special committee from this 
conference that attempted to ar- 
bitrate with the President re- 
ceived the kiss of Judas, they 
felt, when the Arkansan re- 
neged on supposed assurances he 
had given his colleagues to con- 
vey to Eisenhower. The bitter 
statements of Maryland's McKel- 
din among others reflect this. 

At any rate it is a tricky prob- 
lem. Who's to blame? Is the 
vilification and slander hurled at 
the governor justified — or has he 
been crucified?

Workers of the world, unite! And what better 
place to gain sympathy than the UM campus. Five 
thousand keen young minds ready to pounce on an 
injustice. Any injustice! 

The sign you see is Arthur Queens'. Arthur is 
a plumber, and right now he is working on the new 
public health center here on campus. 

Arthur has a new car, but he's afraid to drive 
it. Why? Because four months ago the Pittsfield 
dealer, A. J. Scarafoni (says Queens) admitted the 
defect but did nothing. Arthur went to the Mercury 
people; they did nothing either. Now the car is 
burning itself out. 

Does Queens have a right to this sign? Scara- 
foni doesn't think so. He's suing Arthur for slander 

Says Queens, "All I wanted was an engine, that's 
all, a lousy engine. I didn't ask them for a new car.** 



Campus Comment 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

( The ideas and opinions expressed in this column 
are those entirely of Mr, Kominski and do not ne- 
cessarily express the opinion of the staff of the 

COLLRGIAN.) 

Perhaps all of us who are taking or have taken 
freshman English have been asked at one time or 
another to write news stories. No doubt all of us 
have rebelled — whv should wp hnvp fo writp ionr- 
nalistically in a freshman composition class. For 
those who have wondered and for those who will 
wonder, this column is dedicated. 

Without wa.sting time, I can tell you that news 
writing is of inestimable value as training for any 
other field of writing and will prove valuable for 
any educated person, whatever his vocational inten- 
tions. A former head of the College English Asso- 
ciation, Burgess Johnson, listed five points describing 
the importance of news writing. Breaking them 
down to their essence — here they are: 

"First, there is the recognition of a sharp dis- 
tinction between news and editorial, fact and opinion. 
Writing practice with this distinction in mind . . , 
is as good discipline for the imaginative writer as 
for the reporter of news events. 

"Second, it brings out the ability to imagine one's 
readers while writing, and to adapt word and style 
to the reader's understanding, 

"Third, the writer acquires the habit of getting 
to the point or purpose of the piece of writing as 
promptly as possible. 

"Fourth, the writer acquires the ability to dis- 
cover the element of human interest in dry fact, 
and then to emphasize that interest element without 
distortion of the truth. 

"Fifth, newspaper writing requires all possible 
evidence that a.ssertions of fact have been verified 
... by a skillful use of direct quotation as well as 
by the frequent citation of authority." 

Mr. Johnson points out that these tips apply not 
only to news writing, but also help to develop skilled 
writing in any field. 

So th.'it's tho story! Now, maybe you won't won- 
der why yoii'i-.' writing news .stories, or will vou ?

Collegian Sports Writer 

John O'Keefe, fi'l" senior right son is th 
end fix>m Everett is one of the 
mainstays of this year's edition 
of the Redmen's varsity football 
squad. 

"Okie" as he is known among 
his friends, graduated from E^v- 
erett High School in 1954. While 
at Everett High he was elected to 
the greater Boston All-Suburban 
football team in 1953 and he al.so 
won acclaim for his feats on the 
track field. 

This is John's second year in 
the starting line-up for the Red- 
men. His play thus far this year 
has won him praise from many 
corneis; special note has }>een 
given to tlie fact that Jclin has 
been one of Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke's most dejiendable two- 
way men. 

John is also a co-captain of the 
lacrosse team. This is O'Keefe's 
third successive season with the 
stickmen. He paced Dick Gar- 
ber's club a number of victories 
last spring.

senseless that New York should 
be on a par with such towns as 
Pittsburgh, Cincinnati or even 
Boston considering the situation 
from a standpoint of population 
alone. It will be interesting to 
watch various groups of New 
Yorkers attempt to purchase 
another club, be it a major league 
team from another city or a 
farm club, to take over when the 
Yankees are on the road. Passage 
was hailed by proponents of 
nuijiir league baseball in Los 
Angeles as meeting the condi- 
tions laid down by O'Malley 
under which a 50,000 seat sta- 
dium would be built at a cost of 
!>et\veen ten and fifteen million 
dollars. 

No matter how you look at it, 
it's big business before baseball. 
This shouldn't be new to any 
readers but it certainly is food 
for thought. 



Bob Holbrook had a very in- 
teresting column in the Boston 
Globe yesterday. It headlined. 
"Films show Syracuse man off 
field on TD." 

Whether you know it or not, 
all football coaches have films 
of their football games made in 
order to find their weaknesses 
before their next contest. 

As it turned out Boston U. 
head coach Steve Sinko "felt 
slightly ill" when he finished 
watching the films of his 27-20 
loss to Syracuse. 

"The reason was that a 71 
yard screen pass play by Syra- 
cus In the dying moments never 
should have been allowed. Sinko 
reported to the football writers 
that the Syracuse ball carrier 
stepped out of bounds for three 
strides about the 50 yard line 
and there wasn't an off jial there 
to catch it." 



UMASS AGAINST UCONN 
SATURDAY 

"We'll be a little stronger for 
the UConn game Saturday," said 
line coach Chester Oladchuck, 
last night. 

"As far as statistics are con- 
cerned UConn has outplayed the 
three teams they've played thus 
far," continued Gladchuck. 



Two venerable Yankee Confe-

newed this week-end as Maine

UMass is at Con^iecticut's spa-

Despite the fact that Rhode

ali-eady measured both the Black 
Bears and the Blue Wildcats in 
the race for the Bean Pot, the

PRECAUTIONARY STAND-BY INFIRMARY SET-UP 



Chest To 
Benefit All 
Campus 

by BARBARA GOLDBERG 

This year the Campus Chest 
Drive is directing its aid to- 
ward student benefits and med- 
ical charities, both worldwide 
and local. 

Last nig-ht the first meeting 
was conducted by the two co- 
chaiiTnen, Robert Betts and Bet- 
ty Janik, who were chosen from 
last year's committee. The Cam- 
pus Ohest Drive Committee is 
composed of representatives from 
NeA^TTian Club, Christian Asso- 
ciation, Hillel, APO, the Keys, 
iSci-olls, Senate, WMUA, The 
CoUeginn, Panhellenic Council, 
and IFC. Mr. Richard Brown of 
the history department is the 
faculty advisor. 

This year fhe drive will be 
from November 12 to 16, and the 
goal will be one dollar fi-om each 
person on campus. The organiza- 
tions which benefit from the Cam- 
pus Chest range from the World 
University Service to the Student 
Organization for Scholarships at 
the university. Money is also giv- 
en to the United Negro College 
Fund, Hokkaido University, the 
Save the Children Federation, 
the HampgBiire T.B. Fund, the

The 
Poll Bearer 

BY JOE TABAK 

Question: The Modem Dance 
Club has recently adopted co- 
educational training; do you think 
this will be advantageous to the 
Club? 
STAN MERRILL '59 

Yes, I think that it's a good 
idea, since it will allow more 
versatility in the club's presenta- 
tions. It will be advantageous not 
only to the organization, but also 
to the campus as a whole. 
BRUCE MILNE '58 

It's abtmt time that the 
screened barriers wen- torn down 
and the male population had 
acct^s to this higher culture. I 
wish them every success. 
BEN DOHERTY '59 

It is a fabulous i(i<>a br-caus^e 
it develops an individual's finesse 
in the dance. It gives the guys 
an opportunity to learn grace and 
rhj-thm. It also helps them to de- 
velop their coordination; I think 
that the various athletic teams 
should take an active interest in 
this program. Especially the 
football team. 
PENNY MARTIN "60 

I guess it's nice if you like 
modem dance. I think this m<ive 
should have been made long ago 
if it adds more interest to the 
club.

NURSES I ! 

Dr. Ernest J. Radcliffe, sen-

nurses. Wives of faculty and 
students are requested to reg-

This information is to be 
submitted to the Collegian 
office in the Student Union. 

Bees Buzz 
VanMeter 

Diving out of the glare of 
overhead lamps, flights of hornets 
raided Van Meter corridors at 
2 a.m. yesterday and buzzed late- 
studying frosh. 

Ten students from the 2nd 
floor and seN-en from the 3rd ral- 
lied to the defense of the 4th 
against the invadei-s, and after 
first inflicting sevei"al wounds 
uj>on over-zealous gunners, the 
bees hastily ret ideated to their 
nests. 

One 4th floor gunner, evidently 
the ace of the air raid, taped his 
bag on the door to his room— 23 
dead hornets! 

Building their nests and lay- 
ing their eggs in the sound-proof 
walls, these hornets have been 
tormenting Van Meter students 
all semester.

Commonwealth Room In SU 

Will Accommodate Forty 

Men Patients 

The university yesterday established a stand-by infirm- 
ary in the Commonwealth Room of the Student Union. The 
operation was set up according to a plan initiated by the 
Dean of Men during the summer. The standby beds can 
accommodate 40 patients. 

This move is merely a precautionary procedure at this 
time and will not be used unless the situation becomes seri- 

■ — oxis, Dean Hopkins said. As of 

Thursday a total of 24 patients 
were in the infirmary with a flu 
type infection. This is an in- 
crease of 6 cases from Wednes- 
day. No case has been diagnosed 
definitely as Asian flu. 

Women Take Over 

The University Infirmary can 
care for 40 patients. T^e emer- 
gency plan as drawn up by the 
Dean of Men calls for the setting 
up of 40 additional beds in the 
Commonwealth Room of the SU. 
If events warrant the move, men 
patients will be moved to the 
Student Union and the Women 
will take over t^e Infirmary. As 
of the present there are no plans 
to make such a move. 

Radcliffe Arranges 

Dr. Radcliffe, Senior Physician 
at the University has made ar- 
rangements with area doctors to 
assist if necessary. Nurses are 
being recruited to care for pa- 
tients. Student and faculty wives 
who 'have had nursing training 
are requested to register in the 
CcUegian office as soon as possi- 
ble. 

Plan Not New 

The University has had a plan 
for the establishing of emergency 
healt/h facilities for a number of 
years. During August of 1957 a 
new revised plan was drawn up 
changing the location of the 
standby headquarters from But- 
terfield to the Student Union. 
Five or six years ago the plan 
was put into efTe<-t and equip- 
ment was set up but was never 
used. Details of the new plan call 
for the setting up of beds in the 
small Ballroom and in the case 
of Civil Defense needs the Main 
Ballroom could be used as a hos- 
pital area. The Southwest Corri- 
dor of the Union would ibe closed 
(^ and the Suffolk room of the 
Union turned into a storage and 
preparation room for t'he medical 
stsiT. Medical care would be un- 
der the direction of the Student 
Health Service. The Housing of- 
fice woiild make all arangements 
concerning physical pi-operty 
used in the operation. The Uni- 
versity is ready and has been 
ready to cope with any situation 
t'hat could develop, the Dean of 
Men assured. 



Oedipus Symbolizes 
20th Century Man 

by R. G. PRENTISS 

"Oedipus Rex is morally not 
guilty," Dr. Cedric H. Whitman 
judged in a 75-minute lecture, 
given Wednesday evening before 
an estimated 400 students and 
faculty in Bowker Auditorium. 

A professor of Greek and 
Latin at Harvard University since 
1947, Dr. Whitman is the author 
of Sophocles: A Study in Heroic 
Humanism and is currently writ- 
ing a book on Homer, soon to be 
published by Harvard University 
Press. 

"Of course, factually, Oedipus 
did slay his father and marry his 
mother," the defender of Oedipus 
admitted, "and is guilty in the 
technical sense of the word." 

At once the irreplaceable man, 
the hero, he added, and yet Oedi- 
pus is a loss to society, a para- 
site yfhp commits incest, the most 
abominable crime known to man- 
kind. 

"But the crux of the play 
persuades you that Oedipus isn't 
morally guilty," Dr. Whitman 
reasoned, because his crimes 
were committed unwittingly and 
aren't discerned." 

If Sophocles wanted judgement, 
he pointed out, the playwright 
would have dramatized the action 
of the murder itself. But Sopho- 
cles suppressed this scene, as he 
also did those involving relations 
with the mother of Oedipus.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 11. 1957 



EXPEDIENCY . . . 

Last week this column featured an editor- 
ial criticizing the Student Senate decision 
to fill senator-at-large vacancies by appoint- 
ment. We believe this practice to be one de- 
signed chiefly for the sake of expediency, 
and not for the sake of justice. 

A few days after the appearance of this 
editorial another comment on the issue of 
senate appointments was printed on these 
pages, this by our free lance columnist, John 
Kominski. Mr. Kominski held that the sen- 
ate was perfectly justified in their decision 
to allow class officers to fill the Senate va- 
cancies by appointment. 

Mr. Kominski defended his stand first by 
stating that a considerable savings of money 
resulted for both the senate and the candi- 
dates, and secondly, that the class officers 
were the best qualified people in the class 
to make such a choice. 

"Technicism"— Worse Than Asian Flu 
No doubt money is saved by the appoint- 
ment of senators — and time as well. No 
doubt the class officers are well qualified. But 
do these factors outweigh the fact that we 
live in a democracy, and that in a democracy 
representatives of the people are elected — 
not appointed? Any argument that has been 
proposed thus far defendmg the appointment 
of senators has been based not on what is 
right, or what is just, but on what is exped- 
ient. 

Is this what • _chnicism" has done to us? 
Apparently we have become so adept at dis- 
covering shortcuts, and easier ways of get- 

tinc thincrs Hnnp fViof wn Vio^.r. cn^«.;«^^j ~,,_ 

ideals. Justice? Right? Good? They take 
too much time I 

^^ We Have All Succumbed 

I^st year the Student Senate spent much 
time in the "modernization" of their consti- 
tution. The question of the appointment of 
senators was a part of this modernization. 
Prior to last year the constitution provided 
that senator-at-large vacancies were to be 
filled by holding a special general election. 
The new^ provision states that: "If the va- 
cancy is a senator at large, it may be filled 
in some manner other than special election, 
provided that a three-fourths vote of the Sen- 
ate approves the alternate manner." 

Certainly the Student Senate is not alone 
in succumbing to the evils of modern tech- 
nology. Perhaps we are all guilty of this 
weakness. This is unfortunate — expediency, 
efficiency first . . . idealism if we have time. . .

One To Six In Thirty-six 

by WILSON and WILSON 

Many of the "old timers" remember the University Barber Shop 
across the hall from the C-Store in the late North College. But there 
are few on campus today who recall the orij^inal College Barber Shop

business thirty-six years ago the "Scalp Shop" has expanded with 
the university to its present six chair establishment now located in 
the Student Union. Marking twenty-four of these years is Nelson 
Major, "Nels," proprietor and ranking professor of his own depart- 
ment. 

The one chair shop started by Herman Duell in North College 
basement in 1921 was later sold to Napoleon Mercier who moved it 
to Memnria! Hail and expanded to two CiiaiiM in conjunction with the 
Theta Chi owned and operated C-Store also located in that building. 
In the fall of 19.33 the shop wa.«; again moved back to North College, 
then a men's dormitory, and remained there for twenty-three years. 
When Nels started working that year the total student population 
was 800. He organized operation of the shop through the summer 
months in 1937 and bought out Mercier in 194.^. With the change 
over of the Massachusetts State College in 1947 the business assumed 
the new LTniversity name. 

A native of Adams, Mass., Nels is the third successive genera- 
tion of barbers in his family. As a boy he began a three-year ap- 
prenticeship in his father's and grandfather's shop lathering faces 
after school for the first year. Graduating from Adams' High School 
in 1930 he finished his apprenticeship and served with his father for 
three more years before moving to Amherst. 

With the opening of the new Student Union in 1956 Nels rented 
the present "Scalp Shop" location and furnished it with new chairs 
and modern equipment. On the staff are Ernie Paulin from North 
Amherst who has worked for Nels for ten years. Ed Kelly from Hol- 
yoke who has been with him for two years, Calvin Rogers from Athol, 
a working Pentacostal minister, also with him for two years, and Jim 
Yocuxzo from Northampton who started this year. Nels oflFers reason- 
able prices, excellent hours and fast service which have served to 
keep his customers well satisfied. Many of them, as alumni, have been 
returning for years. 

Contrary to popular belief the "Scalp Shop" is equally available 
to the feminine side of the student body. Nels has been cutting coeds' 
hair since he started in 1933 and notes that several women have been 
Rteady customers for over twenty years. Today there's only one thing 
missing in the "Scalp Shop" and that bears speculation: When will 
Nels have a lady barber on the sixth chair? 



FULBRIGHT PROGRAM 
FOR '58-59 UNDERWAY 

by LORN A REGOLSKY 

If you are a gradiiato student or a graduating senior 
and a citizen of the United States, you may be eligible to 
apply for a Fulbright grant. These grants provide for study 
or research abroafl. and they are a part of the International 
Educational Exchange Program <>1' the Department of Strife. 
They servo a double purpose: to promote b(>tt('r undersUind- 
ing of tlu> rniti'il Stairs al)r()a<l and to increase mutual un- 
derstanding between the |)e()))le of th(> I'nited States and th«' 
peojije of other countries. The recipients i»|' the awards h;ive 
been some ol' our most .^ii. cessl'ul and intdlig-ent ambassa- 
dors. The>- are looki'd upon not onl.v as representat i\<'s of 
the rnit<'d States. Imt of American higher eihication. 

There are twenty countries part ici|\it iii}.r in the Ful- 
bright Program. These inchidc Australia. Chile. Denmark. 
France. CerniimN. India. Israel. .Japan, atid the I'nited 



Fulbrights ... 

Kingdom. In most cases applicants must 
have studied the language of the country of 
application for at least two years. Appli- 
cants in art, music and the sciences may be 
considered without the language require- 
ments if they give evidence of having begiyi 
intensive language study at the time of ap- 
plication. Because of the lack of a language 
barrier, competition foi' grants in the British 
Isles, Scotland, and Northern Ireland is the 
most strenuous. 

Special grants in aid are available for mar- 
ried students in mathematics, chemistry, 
physics, metallurgy and other sciences. These 
are to assist grantees in meeting the cost 
of travel and maintenance for their depen- 
dents. 

A highly specialized progi-am of study 
is not required. Applicants in the creative 
arts, the performing arts and adult workei-s' 
education who do not have a college degi-ee 
may be considered on the strength of private 
study or practical experience. Selection is 
made on the basis of the applicant's personal 
qualifications, academic record, value of the 
proposed study or research, and suitability 
for placement in an institution of higher 
learning abroad. 

The administration of the program under 
the Fulbright Act is supervised by the Board 
of Foreign Scholarships, composed of ten 
leading American educators and educational 
administrators appointed by the President 
of the United States. The Board approves 
all program proposals, designates participat- 
ing institutions, and selects grantees. 

Interested students may obtain an appli- 
cation form from Mr. Zeender who is the 
Fulbright Program Advisor of this campus. 
His office is in Room 4 in the basement of 
Old Chapel. Competition for the academic 
year 1958-1959 ends on Nov. 1. All appli- 
cations should be returned to Mr. Zeender 
a week before Nov. 1. 



Here We Go Again . . 



by TED SHEERIN 

Well here it is, almost the miudie of October 
again and it's time for our annual blast at those 
selfish individuals who think it's smart to cut in line 
at the Dining Commons, Every year we seem to get 
a new batch of people who seem to think they are 
too good to wait in line for their meals like the 
common herd. 

It's pretty darn frustrating to wait for twenty 
minutes before the line opens up and then see a 
dozen girls casually waltz by you with all the pomp 
of Lady Astor on her way to a tea party. 

Anyone who has no more consideration for the 
rights of others, to say nothing of the unmitigated 
gall and nerve, than to stare you right in the face 
while cutting into line ahead of you, certainly has 
much more to learn in college than she will ever 
learn in textbooks unless she takes a course in eti- 
quette. After observing some of these children 
(an adult would have more sense and less nerve) in 
action, peoi)le start to wonder about the kind of 
homes they were brought up in. 

It is quite possible that there are occasions when 
someone is justified, for one reason or another, in 
avoiding the long wait, (football practice doesn't 
last all year) but it sure burns to see someone 
cut into line ahead of you and then watch that same 
person smoke two or three cigarettes before leaving 
the dining hall. 

Naturally, as is usual in cases like this, it is a 
rel.itive few who are responsible for the situation 
••ind their selfishness reflects discredit on all the 
others in their group. What I am trying to say, 
frills, is that I don't hate all of you; T think that you 
!ui" the very best opposite sex we've got and I enjoy

It seems that at the "1200 
Beacon Street Hotel," there was 
a certain maroon and white ban- 
ner with the word Massachusetts 
on ift. The banner disappeared! 
The belief held by those in the 
know at the time was that the 
banner had been wrongfully ap- 
proi)riated by a student (or stu- 
dents from Boston University. It 
ju.sit recently come to light 
: .... thi.s banner is in the posses- 
sion of a certain member of the 
student senate. That's spirit ? ? 

It also seems that a certain 
sorority snatched another banner 
from a certain fraternity. The

MILWAUKEE 
FLOATS AWAY 

by KEVIN KELLEY 
Collegian's Sports Reporter 

The diamond du.st has settled, 
and the equipment is on the 
shelf for the next 6 months. It 
is just about time for the "hot 
.stove league" to start playing 
out its long winter schedule. 

Lew "Best Bet" Burdette, the 
fidgety Braves' righthander, has 
piven the "cracker barrel" man- 
agers a good deal of fuel with 
which to feed their winter fires. 
Burdette in starting and winning 
three world series contests be- 
came the first man in about three 
decades to accomplish this feat. 
The Red Sox well remember that 
a tall, lean southpaw who goes 
by the handle of Harry "The 
Cat" Brecheen pulled almost the 
same feat in the 1946 fall clas- 
sic. Brecheen, however, only 
started two of the three games 
that he won. 

Having installed Burdette as 
the clear-cut hero of the series, 
the task now becomes one of try- 
ing to put a pair of horns on 

BROOKS HOUSE 
OVER HOUNDS 

Brooks House deefated the in- 
dependent Hounds Wednesday 
night for its sixth straight vic- 
tory. The thrilling second-half 
drive was sparked by the pass- 
catching of Don Brennan and the 
defensive play of Gardner Rice 
and Bob Porter. Losing 12-0 the 
Brooks team pushed across a 
touchdown with less than a min- 
ute to play in the first half. The 
second half was completely dom- 
inated by the boys from Brooks, 
who scored twice while holding 
the Hounds' offense helpless. 

Final Score: 

Bnooks 18 Hounds 12 



Tops 
Booters 4-1 

The UMASS soccer team not 
only lost its first soccer game 
of the year at the hands of Wil- 
liams College by the score of 
4-1, but it may have lost the serv- 
ices of its scoring ace Billy Burke 
for the all important UCONN 
game. 

Burke was injured midway in 
the second period when he col- 
lided with the Williams goalie on 
a breakaway. He had to be helped 
off the field suffering from a bad 
leg bruise. After treatment from 
the trainer, Burke returned to 
action during the third period 
only to suffer a painful shoulder 
injury. Right now Billy is walk- 
ing around with his arm in a 
slinK and i.s a questionable start- 
er for Saturday, 

riu' Kphs scorofl in overy per- 
iod, but were not as superior as 
the score shows. The Rodnion 
kept the pressure on the \Hitnrs, 
and only a few bad breaks turned 
thi' tide of the game over to the 
Williams side.

someone. 

Vi.st^^rday's game wa.? the big 
one and it would be quite easy 
to put the bulk of the blame for 
the Yankee loss on the shoulders 
of ynuni Tony Kubec. He set 
the stage for the Braves' 3rd 
inniiig unrising by throwing wild 
to second base after fielding John- 
ny I. jan'.s tailor-made douI)Ie 
j)la ! ; ;. Had this play been ex- 
ecuted properly the way that a 
world s M-ies demands, Don Lar- 
sen would have stayed around a 
little longer and might have 
])itched just a bit like he did in 
h\A -jerfect effort la.'t year. 

Jerry Coleman's little game of 
"ball come to me" with the slow 
rnil.-r t'lat Ed.Iie Mathews hit 
in the 6th inning of the 5th game 
was the direct cause of the one 
run scored in that contest. The 
glaring fact in both of these 
cases was, however, that in order 
to win any baseball game a team 



must dent the plate at least 
once. It looks as though it was 
'- ' that the Yankees were bad, 
';is JMst tluit Burdette and 
thi- '" the Braves witp too 

g od fui' them. 

.\ trreat many die-hai*d Yan- 
kee fans will probably be heard 
.-aying something to the effect 
that if Mantle and Skowron had 
been in there the Yanks would 
have W')n. They have a point 
there, the last time that the 
Bombers went into a series with- 
out a hale and hearty Mantle, 
they lost it. 

ONE PARTI.NG SHOT 

The methods used by .some peo- 
ple in poll taking may not be 
as good as those used by Mr. 
Gallup and associates: however, 
I don't think that the .series 
could have ended any closer to 
the prediction that this paper 
made last week. The ends, in this 
ca.se, have justified the means.

Oedipus Rex . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

mystery in the identity of man," 
Dr. Whitman claimed. "Who am I 
and where did I come from?" 

It is in the determination of 
this mystery, that the play typi- 
fies the everyday life of the 
Greeks, he said, their intense 
search to discover the eternal 
truth and know themselves. 

"Not merely an invention of 
some antiquated Grecian play- 
wright, a thing of the past wholly 
divorced from the twentieth cen- 
tury," he emphasdzed Oedipus as 
"part of us all, the knowledge of 
martyred man versus the infinite 
wisdom of some divine power in 
the universe." 

Therefore, students should not 
confuse the symbolism of the 
play with psychoanalysis and the 
Oedipus Complex, he warned* for 
the theories of Freud are decided- 
ly irrelevant here. 

"An individual essentially and 
unnecessarily misunderstood, top 
.heroism is displayed in the tena- 
city of Oedipus to find out the 
truth and the identity of the 
pollution gripping his kingdom, 
the professor stated. "Why he 
even curses the murderer!" 

Here is shown the mind in its 
dynamic state, he continued, 
struggling through darkness 
which could be so easily illu- 
minated by the gods. 

"Involved in the nothingness 
of life, Oedipus battles against 
the modem philosophy prevalent 
in so many parts of the world, 
that one is nothing, a nobody lost 
in life," he said. 

•Scorning submission, Oedipus 
is a self-made man, he argued, 
one who rises through sacrifice to 
become a king, alnMMt a god 
amongst his people. 

"There is no frailty in Oedi- 
pus," he said, "no error in judge- 
ment, as Aristotle defines tragedy 
in his Poetics."

more interested in the actual ex- 
periences of life than the theory, 
he said, and this is perhaps why 
Sophocles and the viore specific 
Aristotle differ. 

"Scholasticism does not carry 
weight here, for art i« not the 
imitation of art. Not a precise 
reflection of reality, drama de- 
pends instead upon semblance and 
association to our life," Dr. Wilt- 
man told the students. 

Because drama breaks down 
incomprehensible actual expe- 
riences into generalities, he 
stressed the mrssage of drama 
and of Sophocles as not a mere 
imitation of reality, but an ana- 
logy of reality. 

"Oedipus the King portrays 
a concept of the individual and 
human dignity a.s originally con- 
ceived by the ancient Greeks 
through thoir gods." 

No one knows if the end of 
Oedipus is deification or the 
•swallowing up to nothing, he 
said, but we do know Oedipus 
find.s light in his blindness and 
verifies the prophecy. 

"Tragedy >?onerally ends in 
<l««;itli iHcausf it complot<\s tho 
being." 

This is transcendence or the 
limiting factor upon the know- 
ledge of actual experience, he 
said, thus leaving man .still un- 
certain of the ultimate knowledge 
rlos«»ly guarded in the mystery of 
th«' universe. 

"Thf cnncpption of thr pI.tN-w 
fiD-niinjf ;i trilogy is iiot valid." 
said Dr. Whitrn.nn. " Anlieonp

"How do we meet our increasing 
need for engineering instruc- 
tors?" 

Panel discussions covered chem- 
ical, civil, electrical, and ..:.?chan- 
ical engineering as weK as re- 
lated physics and specialized li- 
braries. Social activities ranged 
from gatherings and dinr 5 for

Dear S.J.H.: 

Re: Little Rock: An American Crisis 

There seems to be one question in my mind, 
S.J.H. Have you lived anjnvhere but in Massachu- 
setts? Your article is just about as biased as the 
newspapers you have read, but with many more 
generalities. Before you condemn the actions of 
southern whites, perhaps, it might be wise if you 
understood just some of the situation of this poly- 
gonal question. 

In America we have freedom of the press, the 
privilege you exercise, S.J.H., and this should be 
used to express both sides of the question, not just 
the viewpoint of a crusader in the Umieland news- 
paper. 

Perhaps, S.J.H., it might interest you to know 
while "the nation has been in a state of shock be- 
cause of the racial terrorism emanating from the 
southern city of Little Rock, Arkansas," that right 
here in Amherst there is a zoning law restricting 
certain races to build or buy. 

While the north is looking over the fence "tish- 
tishing" the south, we have forgotten to clean up 
our own backyard. 

Yours truly, 

M. Bishop '61

GETTING AROUND 
THE LAW... 

IjSist week the senate had a party. 

So what, you ask. What's wrong with a 
party? Was it a party of questionable taste? 

Of course not. It was a perfectly nice 
coffee party — a pleasant social get-together. 
The old senate gave the party in honor of 
the new incoming senators. 

Well, ivhat on earth is wrong with this? 

Just that we think perhaps the party was 
illegal. You see last year when the senate 
was engaged in streamlining its constitution, 
making it more efficient and workable (and 
expedient!), along with expelling insuffici- 
ency, they also expelled frivolity. A law 
was passed by the senate forbidding the ex- 
penditure of any student tax funds by any 
tax-supported organization (Senate, Colle- 
gian, etc.) for the entertainment of its mem- 
bers. (Article 5 — Section 7 of By-Laws). 

Law Good; Application Faulty 

The law was passed unanimously by last 
year's senate, and perhaps it was a wise one. 
The feeling behind the law was that student 
tax funds should be used for the purpose 
of carrying out the official business of the 
organization concerned, and not for the en- 
teiiiainment of the organization. 

The senate that passed this measure was 
composed of members belonging to many of 
the organizations directly affected by the 
law. Most of these organizations tradition- 
ally held end-of-the-year parties, and the sen- 
ators who belonged to them realized that 
voting for the law in question would mean 
the abolition of their parties and such (be- 
cause such activities constitute entei'tain- 
ment). However, the senators supported the 
law because they felt it was ethically right. 

We feel that though the senate was right 
m the passage of this measure, that they 
have been inconsistent in its application. 
Why should senators have the right to be 
entertained, and not Collegian or Index or 
Handbook members? 

The Senate's Argument 

The senate offers the following argument 
to justify its action. They say that the coffee 
party, a relatively inexpensive affair, was 
given for the newly elected senators before 
they were Rvorn in. Since the senators had 
not been officially sworn in they were not 
yet senate members, and the law prohibiting 
the expenditure of student tax funds for 
entertainment purposes states that this ap- 
plies to members of the organization con- 
cerned — not to people who are about to be- 
come members. 

The senate is arguing a very narrow tech- 
nicality, one which perhaps reaches the realm 
of absurdity. If a law states that tax funds 
should not be spent for the enteilainment 
of the members of an organization, it is a 
little far-fetched to say the law implies that 
these same funds ran be spent for non-mem- 
bers. This seems to be a rather flimsy in- 
terpretation of law. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY. OCTOBER 14. 1937 



To the editor, 

Re: Little Rock: An American Crisis 

Your editorial concerning Little Rock i.s a per- 
fect ex-ample of a typical biased Northern viewTJoint 
of the South. I wonder if your "editorialist" has 
ever been farther south than Massachusetts? How 
can S.J.H. speak of justice? She (?) is condemning 
Faubus and his "henchmen" on what she (?) has 
read in prejudiced Northern newspapers. 

Is our college paper going to be biased and pre- 
judiced ? Are we going to take a stand on an im- 
portant issue such as Little Rock without first con- 
templating cause and reason? The Massachusetts 
CoUeginn should bring forth both sides of an issue 
and let the reader establish his own beliefs. 

Sincerely, 

Don Vigeant '61 
Baker House 



(EDITOR'S NOTE: In reference to these letters, 

"■{■^"/''^'"'■'" ^^' ^^^ " ^"^^^ unquestionahly a

and has even been in Little Rock. Arkansas; (3) 
She does ntyt depend on the opinions of others

merely posing both sides and lettinp: the reader de-

Lit. Society Presents: 



Should Set Example 

Though this question of a "coffee party" 
borders pn-haps on the picayune, it is still 
an infraction of the law. If the body that 
makes the laws does not live up to its own 
decisions, how does it expect others to do so?

Mr. Leonard Drohan, author of Come 
With Me To Macedonia, and Mr. Robeson 
Bailey will present to the Literary Society on 
Tuesday. Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Worces- 
ter room of the Student Union 'The Story 
of a Novel"— the story of their experiences 
with Drohan's book. 

In Come With Me To Macedonia, Drohan 
(a grraduate of the university in 1950) has 
written what has been called "the funniest 
l>ook of the year; it is of young love and red 
tape quintuplicate." While Drohan was 'at- 
tending UMass he wrote for the Qnarterly 
... this past summer he was awarded a fel- 
lowship at Breadloaf. 

Mr. Bailey, former instructor at the uni- 
versity, greatly aided Drohan in the final 
form of the book (which by the way had 
four re-writes). Mrs. Avis De Vote, who will 
participate in the discussion of the book and 
coffee hour with the audience following the 
talk 'oy Bailey and D»-ohan. is a reader for 
Knopf publishers. It was Mrs. De Vote who 
recommended the novel to Mr. A. A. Knopf 
who Imught it within 36 hours, stating: "T 
cannot j-omomber when T liavo laughed so 
luu-d ... it is headiMl for great popular suc- 
cess." 

Orders f<ir autographed copies of Come. 

With Mr To Maiiflon/a may hi" plarod in the 
Union Bookstore. 



Machmer Mirror 

Time: Around 8:50 a.m. — Place: Front steps of Machmer 

. . . It's been a week of history-making events, what with Faubus 
and Red moons splattering across front pages. And here at Machmer. 
this particular morning, another first seems in the process of making 
campus history. . . A sleek blonde with her dishwater hair strung 
up in a blue ribbon basks in the sunlight on the front steps. Cupping 
her hand, she shades her eyes, peers upward. Not meaning to sound 
Platonic, but perhaps she's tired of her cave. Perhaps she's seeking 
the light, not merely the shadows of men . . . No, an error. The man is 
no shadow. He's the one playing games with the cement mixer. When 
will this construction ever get done? And as he bends back and toils 
and toils, she peers at him all the more intently, eying the beads of 
perspiration trickling down his cheeks like so much excess water on 
a frosty bottle of beer. Unbelievable, this campus first. It's a day of 
wars. Verbal wars. Maybe everybody finally got sick and tired of 
wallowing in the nauseating apathy that clings to this campus. Or 
else they're just trying to avoid making it early to next class. More 
than likely, it's the latter reason. . . But anyway, the morning air rings 
sharp and clear with words. Words of wisdom, words of defiance, 
words of humor. The conservatives and what few liberals there are 
on this campus are out in full force this morning. . . Argues a history 
major: "The last two generations have been too conservative. We 
need more liberalism, and it can only stem from the universities." ... 
Retorts a Home Ec. major, squeezed into a green sweater and plaid 
skirt, "Who cares? History's senseless. I wrote a letter in our last 
History lab." ... Argues a philosophy major: "I say it was Socrates 
who first said. 'Know thyself.'" ... Replies an English major. "You're 
way out in left field. It was Ae.schylus in his 'Prometheus Bound' 
who wrote, 'Learn first to know thyself.' Why that was years before 
Socrates was even conceived." ... Sure, everybody's trying to talk 
at once this morning. But at least, they're speaking their piece for 
a change ... A newly-elected senator furiously waves his glasses 
back and forth in his fist, as he storms aloud, "The Senate spends 
the students' money, and the students should have a voice in choos- 
ing those who spend it." ... "You're right. You're right. No sen- 
ators should be appointed," echoes a chorus of government majors, 
"Taxation without representation is tyranny!" ... "But according 
to 'Campus Comment,' it would cost too much money to have an elec- 
tion," a skeptical eirl points out. , . "If we never had any elections, 
we could really save money, couldn't we?" the senator comments 
dryly. Then he thunders, "Those appointees are going to be in for 
a yeai-tt. l/hen we let political maneuvering such as this slip by, we're 
that much closer to totalitarianism." . . . Meekly, the skeptic retreats. 
. . . Ever> few feet on the steps, groups congregate, all actively en- 
gaged in intense debate. They shuffle through the leaves from every 
direction. From the fly-thick Hatch, down from Snob Hill across 
campus, and from the Old Chapel, its setting looking all the more 
classical and antiquated in the golden foliage of Autumn. ... Two 
senior co-eds skirt around the corner of Machmer, dodge between the 
pick-and-shovel workers, and literally fly up ihe steps ... Says one: 
"Can't understand it. What happened the last couple of years? Here's 
all these organizations screaming for new blood, the Singers, the 
RD's, 'Ml A, the campus publications, and nobody shows up. Only 
about lOr/r of the people on this campus belong to anything." 
Replies the other: "They just don't care, that's all. 4,700 here, yet 
three-fourths of them go home on weekends. Only a few go to the 
dances, and hardly anybody ever shows up for the games." . . . And 
more and more, people approach the town-meeting scene, stop to say 
their little piece, and then fade away ... Two vets are in earnest 
discussion near the doorway... 1st vet: "Apathy, apathy. I've seen 
better spirit on the 2-by-4 campuses down South. Don't they realize 
that spirit is what makes au outfit tick?" ... 2nd vet: "Aw, you 
can't reason with some of the yokels around here. Give or take a 
year or two. half of them are just out of high school, down here 
spending the old man's money, and experimenting around with their 
first brews in the local beer joints." ... In another quarter, several 
students are discussing the chances of survival if thev organize a 
Model Airplane Club, one also meant to acquaint members with the 
latest structural designs of jets. The leader of the conversation, a 
smooth-shaven junior with wavy, black hair, pauses a moment.. He 
watches a hefty damsel with a ridiculous waddle, shoulder her way 
through the crowd. She's crunching a candy bar. Deliberately the 
wrapper is flung on the deck along with the litter alreadv cluttering 
the .steps ... The junior with the wavy, black hair stoops over, picks 
the wrapper up. He taps the damsel lightly, and as she wriggles 
around, with a mock pretense of gallantry, he hands her the candv 
wrapper... "Pardon, madamoiselle. I do believe you dropped this" 
he states sarcastically. .. She grabs the wrapper, turns red. and 
beats It inside Machmer. . .The bell for next class breaks up the 
democratic life outside. The gist of this history-making event sub- 
sides, as student conversation returns to drab, realistic comments like 
shut-eye time" and "That class is boring." Back, back to apathy. 
Only the incessant rumbling of the cement mixer seems ali%e, as the 
sun fades behind dark clouds and light dwindles to shadow. . . 

A college campus is the world itself, only on a smaller scale 
Apathy IS sirangiing both worlds, and the ultimate release depends 
solely upon how well-educated and active we become. Unfettered 
criticism keynotes democracy. Why has it been so mute on this cam-

the talent been hiding itself? A check of the local bars on week 
nights could probably prove very illuminating. Yes. comes gradua-

UCONN RUNS DOWN REDMEN 19-6 

UMass Looks Sharp 
Blunie Outstanding 
In Passing Role 

by TED RAYMOND 
Collegian Sports Reporter 

The Re<lmen were treated to a 
dancing exhibition by a guy 
named Greco as they suffered 
their third straight loss of the 
«eason, 19-6, to a swift UConn 
club Satuiday at Storrs, Conn. 
This Greco was Sal, not Jose, 
but he introduced a new number 
called the "TD Tango" as he 
waltzed into paydirt twice and 
accumulated 136 yards on 19 
carries, only 9 yards shoi-t of 
teammate Len King's YanCon 
rushing record. 



St. Regis 
Award 




Oo-CapuiA fLlnff mm on the 
benck with • l«f injwej, but 
Greco, a sopnomor* who anier- 
studies the Naugatuck Xuggett. 
ran like he was trying to per- 
manently put King out of a job. 

For the first time this season, 
the Redmen got their passing 
offense working as Ron Blume 
completed nine of fourteen pass- 
es for 143 yai*ds. On the statistic 
table, UMass was held to a mis- 
leading 17 yards net gain rush- 
ing. The Redmen running at- 
tack was functioning all right, 
but several times the QB was 
foi-ced to eat the ball causing 
about 100 yards of loss on the 
ground. 

The game was even closer than 
the score showed as the Huskies 
grot what amounted to a gift TD 
in the wanirig moments of the 
first half. After UConn was 
forced to punt with only one 
minute left in the half, UMass 
attempted a long aerial on the 
fiist play from their own 21. 
Jerry D'Avolio, soph quarter- 
back, picked off the pass on the 
Mass. 33 and ran it back to the 
'} yard stripe. Then with only 
24 seconds left on the clock, 
D'Avolio flipped a shoit pass to 
halfback Larry Day in the end 
zone to give the Huskies a two 
touchdown margin at the half. 

Hank Wilson was a defensive 



Jemon f >r the it^/iman m he con- 
tinutlly >t>ppod the UConn Ball 
carriers right in their tracks. 
He and Bob Amirault accounted 
for at least 75'; of the tackles 
for the Redmen with both play- 
ing a great game. 

John Montosi contributed the 
defensive gem of the afternoon, 
however, when he refused to be 
faked out by all the trickery in 
the Huskie backfield and was 
waiting all alone for Larry Day, 
who was anchor man on a double 
reverse, throwing the play for a 
loss. 

Ron Blume was voted the out- 
standing UMass player as he was 
hitting his receivers right on the 
nose with a pretty exhibition of 
passing. The offensive clicking 
the Redmen up and they played 
the Huskies on even terms 
throughtout the game. 




Billy Reynolds is brought down by two Huskies, Norm Chaban 
(34) and Larry Day (10) during the second period of the L^Cpnn 
game. - :|

Massachusetts Bovs 
Pace UConn Win 

by JOEL WOLFSON 

I guess that the many UMie 
fans who ventui^d down to 
Storrs this past Saturday were 
quite pleased with the showing of 
our Redmen. 

We lost a ballgame but we re- 
gained some of the respect which 
hit aji all time low after our 
71-6 loss to UC last season. 

The thing that really hurts 
the pride of the football enthus- 
iasts here at UMass is not the 
final score or even the fact that 
we've lost thi-ee straight, it's 
merely a case of watching boys 
who have been graduated from 
high schools in our state get in- 
to a University of Connecticut 
football jersey and then proceed 
to lick the team from their own 
state. 

We have a fine school here — 
let that point be clear. It is right 
that we take care of the people 
in our own state first, before we 
accept students f i-om other states, 
but — something must suffer for 
it, and our sports teams are find- 
ing the going pretty rough. 

It made me very unhappy to 
watch two fellows from my owti 
high school in Boston, account for 
enough points to whip our Bay 
State eleven. 

In time we'll have the sports 
teams that will lick tin- I«T 
League schools, but right now 
we are primarily an institution 
for the advancement of higher 
education. The basis here is a 
solid educational foundation— it 
will pay off for eveiTone hove;

HUSKIES DOWN 
BOO TEKS 3-1 

by STEVE NEEDEL 

Lady Luck frowned ui>on the 
UMass soccer team Saturday as 
they lost a tough 3-1 decision to 
a strong Connecticut team at 
Storrs. 

The breaks were not going to 
the Redmen all game as the in- 
jury-riddled squad put up a game 
effort despite the absence of high 
scorer Billy Bui'ke and Paul 
Mailman from the lineup. Web 
Cutting was sidelined most of the 
game with a bad leg, while Jerry 
Steinberg was slowed down con- 
siderably by a bad knee. 

(k>alie Dick Williams played a 
standout game holding UConn 
scoreless the first half. Cutting 
re-entered the game in the third 
period and put his "good" foot 
to good advantage putting the 
Redmen ahead on a penalty kick 
but the Huskies came back with 
three quick goals and a win. 

The Redmen fac«» Amherst 
Tuesday afternoon. 

Williams at goal, Man-one and 
Lust at fullback, Rosenberg, Re- 
peta, and Goclowski at halfbacks, 
and Walker, Robinson, Cutti-ng, 
Harris, and Doherty at the for- 
ward line. Steinberg split the 
left fullback position with Lust, 
while Leverone, Field, McCar- 
thy, Caron, Poignan, and Bo\^ 
man also saw <»naiderable ac- 
tion.

SIDELIGHTS 

Homecoming Day: The UMass 
gridmen will be at home to 
powerful, underfeated Rhode 
Island eleven who continued their 
winning ways this weekend by 
soundly trouncing the boys from 
Brandeis. This game was sup- 
posed to have been one of the 
thrillers of .Saturday's piay but a 
speedy half-back from Rhode 
Island turned it into a major 
massacre. Jimmy Adams ran and 
passed thp Rams to a thirty-two 



to seven win over the Judges. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke's team 
will have to stop Adams if they 
are to have a happy homecoming. 

Monte "The Toe" Stickles was 
the hero us "the Fighting Irish" 
of Notre Dame ground out a

CLOTHES MAKE THE BMOC 

Last week we passed along some fashion hints for 
coeds. Today we will do the same for college men. 

The most important thing to remember, gentlemen, 
is to dress with verve, with dassh, with inventiveness. 
Don't be imprisoned by the traditional conservatism 
of men's clothing. Brighten up your appearance with 
a single earring, or a cavalry saber, or a gold derby. 




ioUcJtcf AbJtmt ojudms 



However, guard against gaudiness. If, for instance, 
you are wearing a gold derby, do not also wear a cavalry 
saber. This is too much. Wear a dagger instead, or, for 
formal occasions, a bowie knife. 

Let us turn now to a persistent rumor that a gar- 
ment called the "suit" is on the verge of making a 
comeback. Some of you older students may remember 
this "suit." It was an ensemble consisting of a jacket 
and trousers, both of which— this'll kill you— both of 
which were made out of the same material! 

The last "suit" ever seen on an American campus 
was in 1941— and 1 ought to know because I was 
wearing it. I was an undergraduate then, and in love 
—hopelessly in love with a beauteous statistics major 
named Harrv Sigafoos. (She is one of the two enrl.s T 
have ever known named Harry. The other one is her 
sister.) 

I loved Harry madly, though her expensive tastes 
were the ruin of me. Bit by bit I sold off my belong- 
ings to pursue this costly courtship— first my books, 
then my clothes, until finally I was left with nothing 
to wear but a "suit". One night I came calling for her 
in this garment and she, of course, slashed me across 
the face with a riding crop and sent me from her door. 

I slunk home and lit a Marlboro and sat down to 
think. 1 always light a Marlboro when I sit down to 
think, for their good mild flavor is a great aid to cere- 
bration. I always light a Marlboro when I liotil .sit 
down to think, too, because Marlboro is my favorite 
cigarette, and I know it will be yours, too, once you 
make the ac(|uaintance of that filter, that flavor, that 
fliptop box. As the man says, you get a lot to like with 
a Marlboro. 

Well, sirs, smoking and thinking thus, my eye hap- 
pened to fall on an ad in a campus newspaper which 
said: "WIN A COMPLETE WARDROBE! Touhy's 
Toggery, the campus's leading men's store, announces 
a contest to pick the best-dressed man on campus. The 
winner will receive absolutely free a complete new 
wardrobe!" 

Struck by a sudden inspiration, I took pen in hand 
and wrote a letter to Mr. Touhy of Touhy's Toggery: 

"Sir— I see by the paper that you are giving a com- 
plete new wardrobe to the be.st -dressed man on cam- 
pus. What a ridiculous idea! 

"Obviou.sly, to be the best -dressed man on campus, 
you must first have a lot of clothes, and if you have a 
lot of clothes, what do you need with another wardrobe? 

"Touhy's Toggery should give a new wardrobe to 
the ?ror.s7-dre.ssed man on cam[)us. Me, for instance. 
I am an eyestire. There isn't a crow in town that will 
come near me. Three times this month the Salvation 
Army salvage truck has picked me up. Esquire has 
canceled my subscription. 

"f .submit that a xo'f for nv is ;i vote for reason, a 
vote for equity, a vote for ih*' American way!" 

With a flourish 1 signed the letter and sent it o(T, 
somehow feeling r'Ttnin ihai \ cry soon 1 wouhi l>e 
wearing a complete new wanirobe. 

And 1 was right— because two wteks later ? was 
drafted. ©^!

Donovan vs. Keogh Expected 

On Senate Presidential Slate "^^'J^^^^Eiz 



Thirty-Five Floats Will Vie 
For Honors In Traditional 



Present Pro-Tem President 
To Face Four Year Veteran 



Tonig-ht at 7:30 in the Senate 
Chambers, the yearly election of 
officei's will take place. 

Si«ce the complete election pro- 
cess, (nomination and final vot- 
ing), takes place at the same 
time, there is no official slate 
available prior to tonight's meet- 
ing. 

In an attempt merely to un- 
cover some of the probable nom- 
inees, the Collegian interviewed 
a veteran senator who requited 
to i*main anonymous. 

This senator felt that the 
presidency battle will probably 
be waged between Michael Don- 
ovan, and Richard Keogh. Don- 
ovan was elect e<l last May as 
pro-tem Vice-President and 
became president pro-tem upon 
the attrition of the duly elected 
president pi-o-tem. Keogh is a 
lour yeai- senate veteran "^d^at 
present is treasurer pro-tem and 





Senate Presidential candidates: 
Richard Keogh '.58 and left, 
Michael Donovan '59. 



•^cimiTitiail oi ihe nnance commit- 
tee. 

The vice-presidency race, this 
senator expects, will loom be- 



tween Phyllis Baron and Don- 
ald Ames. This lace will prob- 
ably include Donovan if he loses 
the presidential race. 

Lucy Clark will pi-obably re 
niixiii as secieiary. 

The treasury is open except for 
Keogh if he loses the presidential 
race. 



Strafe 'Em, Scalp 'Em, and 
Blast Off are some of the themes 
which will cpavk the annual 
Homecoming Float Parade on 
Friday night. 

The parade which includes 
thirty-five entries is slated to 
begin at 6:15. "We plan to start 
on time," announced the co-chair- 
men. 

The starting line-up will be 
locate<l on Lin<»ln Avenue paral- 
lel to the Soccer Field where the 
leading float will be located. 
Working back, the floats will line 
up along Ellis drive, the Student 
Union, and Goessmann. The last 
float will be located at tJie stop- 
lights in front of the East-Ex- 
periment Station. 

The co-chairmen have sug- 
gested that floats start for their 
positions between five and five 
thirty. This will expedite the solu- 
tion of any conflicts which may 
occur. 

The parade is routed to pro- 
ceed along Lincoln Avenue to- 
waitl the center of town. A sharp 
left into Amity Street and an- 
other left onto North Pleasant 
Street will bring the parade back 
to the campus. All floats will as- 
semble at the Parking Lot in 



front of the cage. Students and 
Alumni will then proceed to the 
south side of the Student Union 
where a rally will take place. 

Five Topic Judging 

The floats will be judged on 
the following basis: Originality, 
207t>; Participation, 20%; Com- 
position, 20%; Overall Effect,

AUTHOR DROHAN RETURNS TO TELL 
OF "COME WITH ME TO MACEDOMA" 



The author who took his man- 
uscript out of the "bui-eau draw- 
er", against his otitic's advice, 
and i-ewrote it for the fouith 
time vis'ited campus last night 
to tell the story of his published 
novel, Com,' With Me To Mace- 
donia. 

Leonard Drohan, of the class 
of 1950, related "The Stoiy of 
A Novel" in a Liteiaiy SfK'iety 
panel discussion held in the Wor- 
cester Room of the Student 
Union. 

The two people held by Mr. 
Drohan to be largely re.sponsible 
for the novel's publication, Robe- 
son Bailey, foi-mer instinictor of 
English at the university, and 
Mrs. Avis De Voto, a readei- for 
the publisher, Alfi-ed A. Knopf, 
were the other panel members. 

In discu.ssing his work before 



some 50 students and faculty 
members, Mr. Dix>han spoke of 
his "limitations" as a writer, the 
function of each scene, sentence 
and chapter in the novel as a 
whole, and the many revisions 
he made of the manuscript. 
Author's Limitations 
"My limitations are that I 
cannot write serious fiction and 
cannot write dialogue between 
women becau.se I don't know 
what women talk about," said 
the author. 

He added that he wrote in the 
third person because the use of 
"I" has limitations after a cer- 
tain extent: it requires the auth- 
or to be emotional. Mrs. De Voto 
then a.'-ked the author if he wasn't 
emotional. Retorte<l Mr. Drohan: 
"Not in writing!" 

In revising the novel four times 




Stand-by Infirmary In SU Activatrd 
For Men Patients; Amhc^rst Hit Hard 



Mr. Drohan continually strove 
to make each sentence and scene 
"belong" in the story. He tei-med 
this "functionalism", and men- 
tioned the assistance given by 
Mr. Bailey in his critical notes 
concerning irrelevant scenes and 
descriptions. 

Working Outline 

"Contc With Mr To Marcihii- 
ia", said the authoi", started out 
with a character instead of a 
plot. With no outline planned, 
the stor>- grew and grew. 

"Words beget words", ex- 
plained Mr. Drohan. "My next 
work (in the process of being 
written) will have a working 
outline." 

The author concluded that wri- 
ting was a pleasure to him be- 
fore but had now become a "vice" 
in answer to a student's ques- 
tion.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16. 195: 



Shr fflaasadtuartts QloUnitau 



APOLOGY . . . 

This is written as an apology to the town 
of Amherst. 

In a letter printed in the Oct. 14 issue of 
the Collegian one M. Bishop of Baker House 
included the following information: "right 
here in Amherst there is a zoning law res- 
tricting certain races to build or buy." This 
information is not true. 

According to Mr. Theodore S. Bacon of 
the Amherst Town Planning Board, there 
are no restrictions in the Amherst zoning by- 
laws regulating building as to race and color. 
If this were the case, there would be little 
possibility of this being upheld by the courts 
because this is contrary to all principles of 
zoning. 

What Mr. Bishop may have been refer- 
ring to in his letter is the subject of individ- 
ual hidden covenants — which are agreements 
between private parties that cei'tain areas 
are to be open to membei*s of certain racial 
groups only. This often occurs in actual 
deed restrictions, says Bacon, which, unfor- 
tunately, are legal, and beyond the power of 
any town to act thereon. 

Perhaps this is not a valid reason for in- 
sinuating that Amherst is, in a sense, as 
guilty as Little Rock. 



ABSENTEE VOTING 

Attention! Absentee ballots for voting 
can be picked up at the lobby counter of the 
Student Union. They have been available 
there for the past three weeks, and are re- 
ported to be moving very slowly. Thirty- 
nine cities throughout the state will hold 
their elections Nov. 5. Perhaps it should be 
stressed once more that students, although 
they are on campus eight months out of the 
year, still have a responsibility at home. 
Good grief. Take advar.tage of your priv- 
ilege of voting and all that sort of thing! 
(Let's show that nasty old Sputnik how dem- 
ocratic we are here in the U.S.A.) 



A CONSIDERATION 

Tonight a serious senate will attempt to 
choose a worthy leader of that august body 
which represents each student on this cam- 
pus. It may be wise for eveiyone concerned 
to take a close look at the record. 

The class of '58 has been plagued by v/hat 
is popularly known as poor *ieft-overship." 
Every impoii^nt office has been left with 
men who must bear a load of responsibility' 
which is staggering. This is the direct fault 
of those who failed to look ahead in the past 
years, and in effect, they are responsible for 
the overburdened workload of the present 
campus leaders. 

The class of '58 should not pass on to any 
other class a "cold fish" campus student 
administration. 

It is our contention that by training pres- 
ent sophomoi'os and juniors we can avoid 
any situation wliich n'sults in a weak and 
disorganized studt-nt body with overburdened 
student loaders. 

Wiun you vote tonight perhaps it would 
be wise to think of the futuie. 

— S.R.

'You know, honey? I have a feeling we're not alone." 



Potash Back From Argentine 

by ELLEN WATTENDORF 

Mr. Robert Potash, assistant professor of history had the wonder- 
ful opportunity of spending a year in South America while on a leav-« 
of absence from the university this past year. He was there on a 
special government program which brings educators to other parts 
of the world. Although most of his time was spent in Argentina, 
Mr. Potash spent two months traveling about the whole continent. 
He visited the largest cities of South America and witnessed much 
of the color and beauty of this vast land. 

The country where he spent the major portion of his time, the 
Argentine, is one of the most advanced on the continent. It is noted 
for its very high degree of literacy and per capita income. Although 
it has a fairly homogeneous society, there is still a very noticeable 
cleavage between classes. Mr. Potash said that one of the current 
problems being worked out there is that of integration of various 
sectors of society toward the establishment of a moderate government. 
A pressing question today is whether the people of the Argentine can 
achieve a democratic government. Presently tangling with this prob- 
lem is a conference which is trying to replace the extreme centraliza- 
tion of the present government, which is inviting a dictator, with de- 
centralization — which would build up the autonomy of the provinces. 
The outcome of this movement, which is comparable to that of fed- 
eralism in our history, will be most significant in the years to come. 

Of particular interest is the current feeling of South Americans 
towani the United States. The group of people that Mr. Potash came 
in contact with felt that thp TT.S. has failed to assume the resiionsi- 
bility of the unfair trade balance which now exists between the two 
countries. (The price commanded by their exportable goods falls be- 
low that which they pay for materials which they have to get from 
us.) Whether fair or not, wo are expected to make up this difference 
to them in some way because we are in a position to do so. 

Mr. Potash feels that being in such close contact with such prob- 
lems as these, seeing the beauties of a land which cannot be captured 
vicariously, working with very interesting people, and in general, 
being immersed in the land which has been his major interest since 
college, made this year spent in Sojth America one of the most stimu- 
lating and fruitful of his life.

SCOTT EXPOUNDS: 

by DON KENDREW 

Not too long ago this paper ran an article headed 
"The Union . . . Pool Hall or I'alace." Mr. Scott, 
in his never ending endeavors to better the Union, 
has now defined the Union's policies in reply to this 
story. Not intending to condemn the article, here 
are the policies as defined by the director of the 
Union. 

College students have three distinct but related 
obligations, says Scott. First and foremost is the 
obligation of academics. Second is the obligation of 
responsibility. They must be held responsible to 
their studies and to the thii-d obligation — them- 
selves. The responsibilities they have to themselves 
are a well rounded educational background and a 
participation in extracurricular activities. 

He went on to say that the university itself 
commands the key to extracurricular activities. The 
students must discipline themselves as to the ex- 
tent of these outside the classroom activities and 
schedule their time so as to include, some, but not 
all of them. It has been proven, says Scott, that a 
good balance between the two gives students more 
experience in life and better equips them for citizen- 
ship in the community after college. 

Mr. Scott expressed the opinion that the Student 
Union as the center of the extracurricular life must 
provide something for everyone, as people do not 
necessarily have the same interests. 

You will notice that the Union's program starts 
at about seven o'clock each night, pointed out the 
director, starting near enough after the evening 
meal to be convenient for everyone. Most activities 
end at or about nine o'clock when, as statistics show, 
is the time that most people start to study. 

He stated that a survey made at a Student Union 
similar to ours two years ago showed these amaz- 
ing results. For a two week period, everyone who 
used the games room facilities was checked as to 
time spent there. From the hundreds of students 
recorded, two men stood out in particular. Each 
spent forty-six hours in this area during the two 
week period. After consulting with their advisors 
it was learned that one was an A student and the 
other one was flunking. Only ten per-cent of those 
using the facilities excessively were below a C av- 
erage. 

All of which goes to show that the Student Union 
is a great place to study, work, and have fun. sum- 
marizes Mr. Scott. The wise .students, says Scott, 
"must discipline themselves," as to time spent in 
each f'f these categ"ories.

THE MASSACHl'SETTS COLLE(.iAN. WEDNESDAY. OcHUiEU 16. 1957 



The Sports Scrivener 

Rhody Can Be Had 

by JACK CHEVALIER 
ColleRian Sports Reporter 

When the Old Chapel bells signal 2 p.m. Saturday, it will be 
midnight for the football teams clashing on Alumni Field. 

The Cinderella Rhode Island squad may lose its magic touch. The 
backs may turn to pumpkins, the linemen to field mice. 

The scullery maids ot (jMass may suddenly find themselves wear- 
ing golden cleats. 

Or — and this is the popular theory — the Redmen may return to 
their cellar while the Rams live happily ever after. Something's going 
to happen and the usual Homecoming crowd of 10,000 will be there 
to watch it. 

If UMass is going to earn a football headline this fall, it will 
be done Saturday. Rhody, of course, is 4-0 and highly-rated through- 
out New England and the East. The Redmen are 0-3 and unmention- 
able in respectable Boston sports columns. 

This observer would like to make a few points: 

First, Rhode Island can be had. They aren't a great team — they 
are Cinderellas living it up while fearfully anticipating that fatal 
chime. They don't expect it this week, and that gives UM a psycho- 
logical advantage. 

ADAMS MAN TO WATCH 

Second, they have four sophomores in the starting lineup, includ- 
ing the quarterback. They have made no mistakes yet, but could 
fall apart all in one afternoon. Jimmy Adams, a sensational scat- 
back who can run wide to either side and pass effectively, is their 
only experienced starter in the backfield. 

This writer does not believe Rhode Island is as good as Connec* 
ticut. 

If Rhode Island can be beaten, can UMass do it? Why not? 

The Redmen will be at theii' 

physical and mental peak Satur- 
day. Dick Riley and Tony Piraino 
will be i-eady to play full time at 
tackles. Guards Lou Varrichione, 
Bill Goodwin, Hank Wilson, and 
Russ Devereau are in perfect 
shape. John O'Keefe, Ralph Ma- 
loney and Win MacDonald have 
improved each week at end. 

They have Confidence 

In fact, the entire UMass team 
improved laist week and played 
good ball against UConn on a day 
when the Huskies were de.-,perate 
for victory. The Redmen know 
they have improved and are con- 
vinced they can beat Rhody — this 
adds to that psychological edge. 

Rhode Island will obviously be 
overconfident. Metropolitan pap- 
ers have installed them as three 
to five TD favorites. They have 
just come from a 32-7 whipping 
of tough Brandeis. They are 
looking forward to next week's 
game with Brown. Is there a 
better time to knock them off 7 

There is a rumor sneaking 
around campus that Coach O'- 
Rourke will take his forces to 
Greenfield Friday night after the 
rally to assure them of a good 
night's sleep. If this means he's 
taking Saturday's game seriously, 
we commend him for it. 

Another opinion of this colum- 
nist: Saturday's game is the most 
important one ever as far as 
Chuckin' Charley's future at 
UMass is concerned. 

Joe Paradise, the infallible 
(he says) groundskeeper of our 
athletic plant, predicts a victory 
f(ir the Redmen. We just think it 
will be a helluva ball game. 

Our Canteen Kids — the fresh- 
men footballers with university 
grants-in-aid — will make their 
debut Friday afternoon at Alumni 
Field against Worcester Academy. 
It is a worthwhile game for any 
UMass grid fan to see, and will 
start at 2:80. Anything less than 
an unbeaten Freshman team will 
be disappointing. 



Boolers Tie 
Amherst, 1-1 



Cutting 
Marker 



Gets Lone 
For Redmen 



Coach Larr>' Briggs' hooters 
ended a two game losing streak 
yesterday afternoon by playing 
Aniherst College a one to one tie. 

An-.herst drew first blood in the 
third quai'ter when Dave Ford 
hooted a penalty kick into the net. 
In the fourth stanza Web Cutting 
drilled the tying score home. Cut- 
ting's goal made this the third 
straight game in which he has 
scored Umie's lone marker. 

The game had two extra five 
minute periods tacked on to the 
end; these did little other than 
make the game five minutes 
longer. 

The entire club played one of 
its outstanding games of the 
year. Aggi*essive, hard-fighting 
play and teamwork were the 
features of the effort. The play 
of Dick Williams and Charlie 
Repeta was especially sharp.

Bill Richards' frosh hooters 
gained a little revenge for Satur- 
day afternoon's varsity loss to 
UConn by defeating the Huskie

Illness And Injurv 
Plague Stoekbridge 

Injuries and sickness are tak- 
i:ig a heavy toll of Steve Kosa- 
kowski's Stoekbridge football 
eleven. The weakened club will 
journey to Monson Academy this 
Fnday in an attempt to repeat 
last year's 27-^3 victory. 

At pi'esent both centers are 
out of action. The lone end avail 
able at this time is Fred Burke, 
and he is sporting a broken nose 
suffered during a scrimmage 
with the fi-eshmen last week. 

Boys tentatively niaking the 
trip to Monson include: Howie 
Beal, Jim Hanchett, Dan Santos, 
Paul Amaral, Joe Coyne, C. Du- 
prey, Ken Haynes, John Halford, 
Ron Helberg, Capt. George Ir- 
vine, Ev Jones, Al McKay, Tom

Ted Pikul, Paul Restuccia, Dick 
Smith, T. Qualter, D. Yulm, E. 
Ziemiba, T. McMannon, George 
Nowles, and Chuck Shaw. 

Monson Acad, has scored 60 
points in its two games, which 
were won with no great effort. 
The aggies will be out to get this 
victory, but it will be a tough 
one.

The World University Ser\'ice 
is the main organization sup- 
ported by the CSampus Chest and 

is nationally supported by Hillel, 
CA and Newman Club. 

A telegram from President 
Eisenhower opened the WUS con- 
vention October 12 at Newton. 
Robert Larson and Vickie Roch- 
ette of CA, Brina Mandell and 
Joan Lack of Hillel and Betty 
Janik and Robert Dallmeyer of 
Newman Club represented the 
university at the New England 
Assembly of WUS. From the 
speakers they gained an insight 
into both woild affairs and the 
need for WUS support by Ameri- 
can students. WUS operates on 
cash contributions, scholarships, 

Bnd re!i*^f ni^f*:. j-i-ilc r-onft^Kn+o^ 

from students all over the world. 
The Campus Chest at the uni-

WUS. On October 29 the Campus 
Chest will hold a general meet- 
ing which all dorm captains in 
the university drive will attend.

Ames And Merrill Win Close 
Contests, Clark Uncontested 

Michael Donovan defeated Richard Keogh in Wednes- 
day's closely contested races for Senate offices by a vote of 
22-16. Donald Ames was elected vice president; Lucy Clark, 
secretary; and Stanley Merrill, treasurer. 

Donovan, in a pre-election speech set forth as his main 
objective, a well unified Senate. Communication between 

student body and administration, 
combined with cto-ordination and 
co-operation within the Senate it- 
self are desired to bring about 
his objective. 

The results of a re-vote to 
break a 19-19 tie between Phyl- 
lis Baron and Ames favored him 
22-16. The commuters' represen- 
tative, Ames, is also a member 
of TKE, Chairman of Men's Af- 
fairs, and RSu. 

Lucy Clark Unopposed 

Lucy Clark, who ran unopposed, 
was re-elected secretary. A sen- 
ator-at-large from the class of 
'58 for two years, Lucy is also 
a member of WMUA, the oper- 
etta guild, K.\T, and the Christ- 
ian Association. 

In the closest contest, Stanley 
Merrill, veteran senator from the 
class of '59, defeated Da\-id Wil- 
son. Merrill ser\'ed in the Senate 
last year as chairman of the 
Traffic Committee and is a mem- 
ber of Phi Mu Delta. 



Tax Increase 

Prevention 

Possible 

The Student Activities Tax 
Fund was set up by the Student 

.-'CIIMtC 111 I lie 0|^X111^ MA X *.HJ I • 

All monies collected by the 
L'niversity Treasurer from activ- 
ities taxes are deposited to the 
.S.ATF account. The Senate 
Treasurer then transfers an 
amount decided on in the budget 
to each organization. All unspent 
funds above a figure set by the 
Senate must revert to the SATF 
before the current year's appro- 
}>riations can be made. 



Some organizations did not get 
as much money from the fund 
as would amount to one-half 
their year's budget. This is due 
to their having had to spend mon- 
ey from their accounts to oper- 
ate until they received their ap- 
propriations fiV)m SATF. Since 
this money should have reverted 
to SATF, it has been considered 
an advance on this year's appro- 
priation and their share has been 
reduced accordingly. 

It can be seen that a large 
amount of money did revert to 
SATF fmni various oj-ganiza- 
tions. This is in the natui-e of 
a "windfall," and probably will 
not happen again. Therefore, 
care must be taken not to waste 
this "surplus as it can be used 
in the lD.^8-59 fiscal year and 
may help prevent a tax increase. 
It can also be seen that collec- 
tions are nmning above the ex- 
pected level due to a larger en- 
rollment. This same increase in 
the number of students means 
that some organization?, partic- 
ularly the publications, should be 
con.sidered for a siqipUiiK utary 
budget. 



Three Hours of Discussion 

The selections were the result 
of almost three hours' discussions 
and final decisions. Orations for 
ofl^ce of president alone took one 
full hour. As there was much to 
be said for a variety of people, 
it took a long time to narrow 
down the field of candidates. In 
view of the long decisions and 
close races, rumors of machine 
politics must be discounted. 

On Thursday and Friday after- 
noons, Donovan interviewed sen- 
ators interested in chainnanships 
of various committees, including 
finance, curriculum, activities, 
elections, services, building and 
grounds, traffic and safety. His 
choices will be announced at the 
Senate meeting on Wednesday. 

Donovan, class of '59, senator- 
at-large for two years, a member 
of Sig Ep, and SU governing 
b<iard plans to make this year's 
.Senate "the best ever" with the 
full co-operation of the fine 
group of newly elected solons.

THE REAL STOR\ 
OF HOMECOMING 

Many moons ago there livum on our Red- 
men reservation called Umieland a great 
warrior named Big Chief South College. 
Big Chief very seldom on reservation as he 
was always off fighting battles for glory of 
tribe. Right now Big Chief was in Boston 
fighting heap biggum battle with big boss 
warriors of all the land. These warriors mak- 
um all rules in the land, and givum out gold 
to run Redmen tribe. Boston warriors alius 
try to make more rules and givum less gold, 
and Big Chief South College alius try to 
try to makum more rules and givum less gold, 
so he could build bigger and better tepees. 
Hence, the battle. 

But one day when Big Chief stillum far 
away in Boston, Maroon Feather, chief of 
sophomore braves honorum society, galloped 
into StuU tepee on his biggum white stallion 
(named Hoppy) with muchum goodum news. 
"Braves and squaws of Umieland — Big Chief 
South College is victorious! He has won- 
num for our tribe 'Great Law of Freedom' 
— lessum laws and morum money!" Amid 
the cheer« of the whole tribe Maroon Feath- 
er cried, "Let us make ready for heapum big 
'comum Home Party' for our Chief!" 

For days all the braves and squaws in 
Umieland gettum ready for biggum party . . . 
finally biggum day arrived, and back from 
the wars came the victorious warrior South 
College. 

First camum big feast around campfire 
by college pond — everyone eatum, drinkum, 
and havum muchum good time. After the 
feast the lovliest maidens in all Umieland 
camum floating up and down pond in canoes 
(one of these maidens wouldum be chosen by 
Big Chief as Princess of Comum Home 
Party). Thus, the first Floatum Parade in 
Umieland history. 

Finally Princess Longbraids was chosen 
mostum beautiful squaw of Redmen reser- 
vation, and rightum av.-ay allum braves start 
to fight over her. Maroon Feather, followed 
by his sophomore braves, startum to swim 
out to center of pond where Longbraids sat 
in her canoe. At same time, heapum bold 
freshman brave, named Boris Morris Be- 
gorry Ugh Ugh O'Toole, swimmum out to 
canoe from other side followed by swarm of 
loyal frosh. Maroon Feather seized one 
braid, and Ugh Ugh seized the other, and 
both sides pullum very hard. Finally after 
tense see-sawum struggle, the sophomoi*es 
won — and Princess Longbraids happily fell 
into the arms of the victorious Maroon 
Feather. Thus, began the tradition of the 
Rope Pull at Comum Home Party in Umie- 
land. 

Big Comum Home celebration climaxed 
with heapum big ram hunt next day between 
Redmen, and the braves of far off Rhode 
Island reservation. Naturally our illustrious 
Redmen finish off the mostum rams, and the 
first Comum Home game on reservation end- 
um with great victory. 

Since all the braves and squaws of LTmie- 
land had so muchum fun at Big Comum 
Home Party, The Great Spirits decided to 
continue it every year . . . and this is why 
we celebrate Homi^'oniinp: today.

HOMECOMING ... 

(Sputnik Will Be There. Will You?) 

by NORM MICHAUD 

The span of time created by the motion of our universe has evi- 
denced many important factors. Probably the most important of these 
facts is that which by observance shows the occurrence of events to 
be a never endinj? succession. There is always something to look for- 
ward to. 

From this infinitude of succeeding events has issued another fact, 
that of permanence. That event which is observed to repeat itself 
consistently, secures itself a niche in the expectant future. This PER- 
MANENT enabled the ordinary man to look forward to more than 
just A next event. It enabled him to look forward to a PARTICULAR 
event. 

The early Egyptian looked forward with optimism to the daily 
rebirth of the sun and the annual flooding of the Nile (an event 
which refertilized his lands). The development of science placed great 
confidence in the regularity of nature's evolution. The Greeks looked 
forward to the feasts in honor of Bacchus. We MODERNERS look 
forward to the relaxation provided by our annual holidays. At the 
time this is being written, a scientific eyecatcher by the name of 
Sputnik is expected to make an appearance every ninety-five minutes. 
Here, on campu.s. we have many events which are, or at least should 
be. looked forward to with pride-filling expe<rtations. 

One of the most important of these is the Homecoming weekend 
which has its annual conception tonight. .Sputnik will be there. Will 
you? 

Tonight, the massive spirit of the Redmen Tribe, led by its great 
Chief Metawampee will ignite the council fire which in turn will signify 
the annual opening of the door of the towering campus tepee to the 
returning spirits of the external world. True this is mythical in that 
our great Chief and our unifying wigwam are not tangible. But it 
will be made concrete by our whole and willing participation. The fire 
wiiicii «¥ii! he ignited will be the instilling tire of intelligence, knowl- 
edge, conscience and emotion. The returning spirits which we pay 
homage to are not the spirits of wine or festivity. We honor the 
greater spirits, those of success, achievement and wisdom. Our myth- 
ical tribe is held together by the realization of the possibility of 
achieving our ambitions made concrete by the success of those who 
preceded us. The attention these spirts give us reveals their concern, 
their awareness and expectation of our eventual transformation to 
their world. Their return honors us as we honor them in returning. 
Sputnik will be there. Will you? 

There will, of course, be festivities, the highlight of which will 
be the display of the prowess of the greatest warriors of our tribe. 
These specially trained eleven braves have been far afield the past 
twenty-seven moons. In three daring raids they have reaped a golden 
treasury of moral wisdom. Their courage and valor will be tested 
once again when a neighboring tribe will send eleven goats to invade 
our camp tomorrow. Goats they will be when faced by the undaunted 
fearlessness of our warriors backed by the unwavering support of our 
tribe, spurred on by the presence of our great spirits. 

The display of the superiority of the Redmen tribe begins to- 
night. There will be a triumphal tribal procession through the paths 
of Amherst, our camping grounds, ending in a life-force stirring rally 
in which we shall summon the power of our groat spirits. Once again 
we will renew that life-force, that force which urges, strengthens 
and showers upon us those drops of vitality which are the basis of 
the drive to maintain our superior standing among all tribes. 

Sputnik will be there. Will you?

C.R.C. Open Letter 

\''ery few students are aware of all the 
activities which this campus offers — the op- 
portunity to work with the mentally ill is 
one such category. 

r^eds Hospital (located near Northamp- 
ton) is a specialized mental institut for 
veterans; they are providing a proifram 
whereby neighboring colleges are able to do 
voluntary' work v.'ith the patients. The pro- 
gi*ams consist of playing cards, checkers and 
group games, in addition to singing, piano 
playing and dancing. 

The students who were able to take the 
two orientation sessions at Leeds last year 
are now making weekly visits to the patients. 
This outside contact has a multi-fold pur- 
pose: it shows the patients that people do 
"care" about them, and the enthusiasm of 
the students restores their desire to actively 
participate in activities rather than to as- 
sume a passive attitude. Foremost, however, 
they realize that we are from the "outside 
world," and by integrating with us, they may 
feel an increased desire to tackle the con- 
fusion of reality — ^their resulting self-con- 
fidence is a vital factor to their adjustment. 

If you are interested in this opportunity 
(it involves attending the two orientation 
sessions at Leeds — transportation is provided 

or>rl fV>rtr» irioi+innr +-V«£k Vtnarvifol mrkTl+'Vll*/" Hi- 

monthly, or weekly), please sign up either on 
the sheet at the SU desk, or on the sheet 
posted in your sorority or fraternity. 

The orientation sessions — both of which 
must be attended — will be Wednesday, Octo- 
ber 23 and October 30. If someone doesn't 
contact you before October 23, please meet 
at Skinner parking lot at 6 :30 ready for your

the experience will be invaluable.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 18, 1957 



Redmen Ready For Rhodie . . . 

Rhode Island Overconfident, 

Capacity Homecoming Crowd Expected 



Six sophomore backs who may 
Boon develop into outstanding 
ballcarriers hold th? hope? ■for 
the future of football at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. It is no 
secret that Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke is rebuilding the Red- 
men this season and most of his 
future plans rest with these six 
speedsters. 

Little Armand Sabourin of 
Northbridge has the brightest 
future. A short speedster who 
can change direction without los- 
ing a bit of speed, Sabourin 
sparkled in the team's first pair 
of games. Unfortunately, against 
BU he injured his knee and was 
lost for the season, but the little 
fellow will bounce back to carve 
a high slice out of the scoring 
column for himself. 

A dangerous runner that 
UMass fans have yet to see is 
Billy Reynolds. Bill is the team's 
fastest man, doubly dangerous as 
a runner and a pass receiver. An 
injured ankle has sidelined the 
Mansfield gridder but he is ex- 
pected to shine in the next few 
games. 

Roger Kindred, burly fullback 
from Newton, has been gaining 
experience at fullback spelling 
regular Buzz Richardson. Kindred 
is a powerful runner and devas- 
tating blocker, who may even 
give Richardson some stiff com- 
petition for the starting role la- 
ter in the season. 

Determination personified in 
the form of Ken Crandall of Dra- 
cut may be another star of the 
future. Ken was so outstanding 
in pre-season drills that he moved 
right into the number two left 
half slot just behind Jerry Walls. 
Ken can not match Walls' run-

ning ability but he is second to 
no one on defensive skill. 

Injuries have hampered Tom 
Brown and John Murphy, a pair 
of speedballs. Brown was the 
high scorer on last year's froali 
squad, but has been slowed by a 
sore back. A knee operation per- 
formed last summer keeps Mur- 
phy from the starting- lineup. 
Once John regains his old speed 
he will give enemy defenses 

nightmares. 

* * ♦ 

Quarterback Ronnie Blume of 
the University of Massachusetts 
has turned out to be a late bloom- 
ing flower for the Redmen. After 
two years on the bench, Ronnie 
blos.s-omed into a top notch in 
last weekend's game with Connec- 
ticut. 

The lanky senior from Lexing- 
ton spent most of his fii'st two 
years on the hardwood while more 
experienced men piloted the team. 
In pre-season forecasts, he fig- 



-»,,. 



ured to share signal calling 
chores with talented Billy Max- 
well. Hlowever. Blume was given 
the stai'ting assignment against 
the Huskies and demonstrated 
that it will be very difficult to 
remove him from the lineup, 

Blume kept the Redmen of- 
fense rolling with seven complet- 
ed passes in fourteen attempts for 
a total of 112 yards, despite the 
fact he was rushed by the big 
UConn line. His tackling and pass 
defending from the safety spot 
also helped the UMass cause. One 
of his tosses to halfback Bob De- 
Valle ate up 55 yards and set 
up the Redmen touchdown. 

Blume wa.'t the LTMass game 
captain for the day. His general- 
ship and throwing NEARLY 
sparked the luckless UMass team 
to its first win of the year. He 
hopes to equal or better this per- 
formance when the Redmen clash 
with Rhode Island, owners of a 
glittering 4-0 record. 



Harriers Meet BU, UC 
Today; Frosh Lose Debut 

Mount Hermon beat the UMass 
Frosh yesterday by a score of 
2S-;n, giving the UMies their 
second loss in as many starts. 

Ralph Buschman, Ralph Flint, 
and Enio Barron, represented 
UMass very well by placing first, 
third, and fourth respectively. 
More depth is needed to pull up 
the rear, let's go Frosh, you can 
do it. 

The University was well rep- 
resented this weekend at State 
road races. Varsity runner Pete 
Conway won the Springfield five- 
miler. Ralph Buschman placed 
second in a close race at At hoi. 
Emo Barron took a third in the 
South Boston three-mile run. 

The next cross-country meet 
will l>e with Boston U. and Univ. 
of Conn., on Alumni Field today, 
October 18th, at 3:00 for 
frosh, and 3:30 for the 
squad.

'57 HOMECOMING GOES ON DESPITE RAIN, FLU 



Flu Cases Increase 
With Men In Lead 

by SALLY KANE 

Ernest J. Radcliffe, Head Phys- 
ician of the University, announced 
that there were about fifty cases 
of a "flu-like infection" as of 
Saturday evening. 

Of these fifty people, thirty 
have a flu, but whether or not 
it is the Asian type is yet unde- 
termined. Radcliffe will not know 
the variety of the flu until he 
receives the results of blood sam- 
ples, which he sent to be tested. 

As of Sunday afternoon, these 
men felled by the "flu-like in- 
fection" were 28 — three less than 
Saturday. They are housed in 
emergency quarters set up in the 
small ballroom of the Student 
Union. 

The eighteen women stricken 
are in the infirmary. Dr. Rad- 
cliflFe statetl that there is a bed 
capacity of ninety-three: thirt>'- 
three in the infirmary; forty in 
the Small Ballroom, twenty-five 
of which are already occupied; 
and twenty in the Large Ball- 
room. 

Radcliffe also said, in regards 
to the nursing situation, that it 
was "covered over the weekend". 
As yet there have been "no ser- 
ious cases", but the Infirmary has 
no estimation of the peak of the 
number of students who will 
be stricken by the flu. 

At Amherst College currently 
there is approximately twenty- 
five percent of the student body 
who have some type of "mild flu- 
like infection".

Fleet-footed Jimmy Adams led the high flying Rhode 
Island Rams to their fifth straight win of the current sea- 
son, 27-13, to spoil the Redmen Homecoming Day with a 
crowd of 7500 at Alumni Field Saturday. 

The Rams, comfortably seated atop the Yankee Con-

in danger in the first half, after UMass scored first in the

Rev. Steele 
To Speak Here 

by LINDA DELVENTAL 

The Rev. Charles Kenzie 
Steele, leader of the negroes par- 
ticipating in the Tallahassee bus 
boycott of May, 1956, will speak 
at the Christian Association Gen- 
eral Meeting tomorrow night. 

The C.A. meeting will be held 
in the Commons, line one at 7:30, 
Tuesday evening. The subject of 
Mr. Steele's discussion will be 
inteKfiation, how it is being ac- 
complished in the South today, 
and how it could be better ac- 
complished with a greater Chris- 
tian undeistanding. 

His militant stand as a leader 
of the Southern negroes has 
brought Mr. Steele, the young 
minister of Bethcs Baptist 
Church in Tallahassee, into much 
dangtr from riuHcal jiro-segrfga- 
tionist whites. 

The boycott was organized af- 
ter two negro co-eds were arres- 
tetl for refusing to move to the 
rear of a bus. 

The purpose of the meeting 
and discussion will be to give 
students a true picture of the 
Southern racial situation. 

All C.A. members and other 
intcK'stt (i .students are invited 
to attoiul. 

For those who are unable to 
attend the evening meeting or 
would like to meet and talk with 
Mr. Steele personally, thei-e will

Then Rhody proved their claim 
to the "Cinderella Team" name, 
as Rog Pearson uncorked a long 
30 yard heave to Bob Mairs on 
the first play from scrimmage. 
Mairs gathered the aerial in over 
his shoulder and sprinted the rest 
of the way from the UMa.s.s 38 to 
paydirt for a 68- yard TD play. 
Gerlach converted and the Rams 
were on their way. 

The long awaited touchdown 
was the spark of life they needed, 
and, shifting into high gear, 
Rhode Island managetl to lug thf 



ball back down to the UMass goal 
again before the half ended. This 
63-yard drive was highlighted by 
Jim Warren's 34 -yard sweep to 
the Redmen 18. Then Adams car- 
ried to the 7 and two plays later 
Bill Poland drove into the end 
zone from the 3. Gerlach again 
kicked the ball through the up- 
rights and at the end of the half 
the Rams were on the heavy end 
of a 14-6 score.

Full Weekend Impossible But 
Events Held Draw Crowds 

by M. J. PARISI 

The heavens opened and the rains came down on UMass 
campus last Friday night, but the Homecoming show went 
on as the university held its annual float parade. 

Hundreds of alums and Amherstites watched making 
this one the biggest float parade ever to be seen on the uni- 
versity campus. 

The winner of the contest in the sorority competition 
was Pi Beta Phi whose slogan was "Let's Capture the Big 
Game." The runners up were Kappa Kappa Gamma with 

"Nile-ate-em" and Sigma Kappa 
with "Bait 'em and Beat 'em." 
In the fraternity contest Phi 
Sigma Kappa took the top slot 
with "Let's Roast the Rams." 
Second and third places went to 
Alpha Epsilon Pi and Theta Chi. 
AEPi's theme was "Let's Rail- 
road 'Em" and Theta Chi's waa 
"Let's Wash 'Em Out." 

Arnold House with "Our 
Beaux Will Reign Over R.I." 
took first place in the women's 
dormitory competition. Second 
place went to Thatcher House 
with "Batter the Rams" and 
third went to Crabtree House 
whose slogan was "Scalp'um, 
Redmen." 

The winner in the men's dorm 
division -artjit to Baker House 
with "RI.'s Last Sigh." Van 
Meter took second place with 
"Sink'em, Redmen" and Chad- 
boume came in third with the 
"heart- rendering" plea of 
"Please Win!" 

A prize for the new diviaa<m 
including tipperclass women's 
dorms was won by Abbey with 
their "Lick 'Em" float. 

Those who took the first place 
positions were awai-ded plaques 
and tJiose in second and third

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, OCTOBER 21. 1957

ANOTHER SALUTE 

Though we have been consistently told 
that there is not an c^pidemic of any kind 
presently raging on the UMass campus, some 
very sick males continue to be moved into 
the Student Union ballroom, and plans have 
been made to convert the rec room of Knoui- 
ton House into an auxiliary "women's ward" 
in case of sudden overflow of patients at 
the infirmary. Regardless, epidemic or no, 
quite a few members of the university com- 
munity have proven themselves veiy fine 
citizens by their unselfish work in the care 
of our bed-ridden fellow students. 

Some of the busiest people on campus 
have found the time to visit regularly with 
our sick friends in the newly nicknamed 
"Flu-U". President and Mrs. Mather, Dean 
and Mrs. Hopkins, Dean and Mrs. Cahill (of 
the College of Arts and Sciences), and Pro- 
vost and Mrs. McCune along with many 
other members of the faculty and their wives 
have taken turns serving meals to the ill stu- 
dents, and generally helping the greatly over- 
burdened doctors and nurses in the care of 
these students. 

This, then, is a salute to all the faculty 
and administration members who have con- 
tributed their time and services in the care 
of our flu-ridden friends. The students are 
truly appreciative of their eff'orts, and have 
asked the Collegian to thank everyone who 
sacrificed their time to "bring a little sun- 
shine" into the lives of a few people who 
greatly needed such attention. 

And thanks not only to the administra- 
tion and faculty, but to the students as well — 
particularly to Dick Keogh, Senator from 
Greenough — who deserves a pat on the back 
for his unselfish efforts on the behalf of the 
students in the Flu-U. Thanks to everyone. 



A WARNING... 

It is too bad that the natural rambunc- 
tiousness of students had to result in the 
carelessness and recklessness that was ex- 
hibited at the rope pull Saturday afternoon. 
This is a good way to end traditions at the 
university. 



OPTIMISM... 

Says one of our professors, "Americans 
are inclined to be too optimistic. This is trite 
and unrealistic — in fact it's downright dan- 
gerous." 

He is forgetting that it was the optimism 

of a man named Smith that held the first 
American colony together. Where were the 
pessimists? On the Oregon Trail? In the 
sod shanties of the plains? Riding herd on 
the open range? Trapping beaver in the 
Rockies? Obviously, these were optimists. 
But they were more than optimists; they 
were builders. 

Perhaps this professor was warning 
against the dangers of blind, unbounded 
optimism, optimism without any consider- 
ation of future problems, or obstacles, or dis- 
appointments. Such a state of mind is most 
assuredly lx>th unrealistic and dangerous. 

But optimism need not be this type of 
rose-colored blindness. Optimism can build, 
and progi'ess. Optimism figured prominently 
in blazing the westwari trails, in drawmg 
up the Declaration of Indt^ieiidence, in the 
reforms of the Rooseveltian era. Optimism is 
a part of looking ahead to the future. If it 
is not blind, it can be very realistic indeed. 



Schneewittchen 

(Or Snow White) 

(reprinted from a "G.L's Deutsch") 

Many jahre a^o there lived in DeutHchland ein kneines Madchen, 
the daughter von einer Queen who was very schlect. The daughter's 
name was Snow White because eines Tages als sie spieien waren, she 
fell into a barrel von peroxide. 

Schneewittchen's Mutter war sehr vain and jeden Tag she would 
gaze into ihren magic mirror on the wall und fragen. "Magic Spiegel, 
magic Spiegel on the wall — wer in this Land ist the fairest of all?" 
und each day the mirror would reply, "Du hist the fairest, oh queen!" 

As Snow White grew alter und begann to acquire the attributes 
of a teen-aged Madchen. the .Spiegel became mehr hesitant mit its 
antwort to the queen's taglich question. 

Eines fateful Tages the queen fragte, "Magic mirror, an der 
Wand — who in this Land is the schonste von alien?" und der mirror 
antwortete, "Listen, du alte bat. What kleine beauty you ever had 
pooped out a lange Zeit ago und I'm getting tired of spreading diese 
line to you jeden Tag. In short, you don't show me viel. Aber your 
daughter Snow White . . . ooo la la. . ., she has dast extra zip, das 
added sparkle . . ." The mirror nie finished its commercial-like praise 
of Snow White weil die nasty alte queen ruined sieben of the best 
years von her life mit einem blow. 

"Jetzt, ich bin still the fairest," sie sagte as she tightened her 
corset, aber was the mirror told her begann to disturb the aging 
queen. "I'll have to get rid of das kleine brat Schneewittchen in order 
to keep up mit the court intrigues," dachte the Queen. 

Nachsten Tag she sent nach dem Jager wer war instructed to 
take Snow White for a walk in dem Wald . . . den langed Weg. The 
Jager. a kindly Mann, couldn't bear to think of lopping ab the Kindes 
Kopf so he went mit ihr in the woods und told her to flee fur her life. 

Night fell und hit Snow White so schwer an dem Kopf that she 
fell schnell asleep und didn't bis spat the nachsten Morgen. Nach 
awaking, she begann wandering durch dem Wald until sie kam upon 
a tiny haus in a clearing. Investigating, she found dass das Haus ap- 
peared to be das Heim von seven little Kindern weil there seven little 
Betten. sieben kleine Stuhle around den Tisch, und other such evidence. 
So, noch feeling schlafrig, she jumped into eins won den Betten und 
slept noch mal. 

Sie war awakened spater when seven tiny men peeped into das 
Schlafzimmer. She jumped up mit a start und said, "Why, you're 
seven dwarfs." 



"No kiddin'." sagte Grumpy, the one were war immer in a foul 



mood. 

"You're cute," sagte Snow White, "why don't you drop tot." 

Aber in time, Snow White und die dwarfs became sehr gute 
Kameraden und she kept house fur them als sie waren arbeiten in 
their Diamond mine. 

In the meantime, the wicked queen hat gelernt das Schneewittchen 
noch lebt. So she crept to a secret Zimmer und prepared a doppel 
shot of witch's brau. As she drank it she slowly began to be trans- 
formed into einer alten witch. When the change war fertig, she 
hobbled uber to her broomstick, mounted it. swung a crinkled Hand 
in die Luft und cried. "Away, oh broomstick. Nehmt mich to where 
Schneewittchen is bidding!" 

So ab she want into the wild blau yonder, climbing hoch into the 
sky. The only ding missing war exhaust von dem ramjet. 

That afternoon als Snow White war getting das Haus sauber fur 
the dwarfs who would gleich be Heim von work, the witch approached 
her disguised as sine Aofel peddler. "Ich habe schone, juicy apples 
for sale, kleines Madchen." she told Snow White as she held aus a 
bright roten Apfel especially poisoned mit einem Formula which would 
bring on eternal Schlaf zu der person eating it. Das kleine girl kaufte 
the apple, took winen Bias und fell fast asleep. 

Jetzt was so you think will hapen? Will Snow White wake auf 
•der did the wicked queeen endlich get her quaa dem Wag. If you 
care zu wissen, send only $15,000.00 to this publication und wir werden 
schicken to you, postpaid, a real, honest-to-goodness poisoned Apfel 
und let you try it und find out fur yourself.

Leiier To The Editor. . . 

To the Editor: 

The active interest of university students in the 
southern integration controversy is indicative of the 
real concern which is felt by the students for this 
national problern. However, few of us have an ac- 
curate picture of what is actually happening in the 
South and for that reason our understanding of the 
situation is limited. Therefore, we are especially 
lucky to have with us on campus this week the Rev. 
C. Kenzie Steele, leader of the Tallahassee bus boy- 
cott. Sponsered by C.A., Mr. Steele will be speaking 
on integration Tuesday evening at I'.'dO at the Com- 
mons Line 1. On Wednesday morning eveiyone is 
invited to stop in for breakfast at the Worcester 
room of the Student Union between 7:15 and 9:00 
t'o discuss the subject informally ^\^th Mr. Steele. 
Here is a real opportunity to find out the truth about 
the integration problem: I hope many students will 
be able to take advantage of it. 

Sincerely, 

Barbara Totman

Campus Comment 



by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(The ideas and opinions expressed in this column 
are those entirely of Mr. Kominski and do not ne- 
cessarily express the opmion of the staff of the 
Collegian.) 

When a university such as our own grows, there 
are many changes that take place. One thing that 
does not change, however, is tradition. In fact, the 
very life of a university depends a great deal on 
tradition. Why kill tradition, then? 

Who kills it? We do. Do we intend to kill it? No. 
Do we kill it by doing the wrong thing? Sometimes. 
Who then is responsible for killing tradition ? Indi- 
rectly, we are — the students of the univei-sity, but 
dimctly, those officials of the university who have 
authority over us are vl;e ones who kill tradition 
when it appears t' ihem is something that is harm- 
ful to the univeisity. Are they justified in doing so ? 
Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. 

What this all means is that we may, because of 
accident, lose another campus tradition . . . the 
annual Sophomore-Freshman rope pull across Col- 
lege Pond at Homecoming. Because the rope pull 
proved to be quite hazardous la.^t year, certain mem- 
bers of the administration were in favor of its being 
dropped as a univei'sity tiadition. Tlie problem was 
gradually forgotten, but another accident this year 
has brought it back intto focus. 

Last Saturday, a spectator was accidentally injured 
at College Pond when the rope pull was in progress. 
Anyone watching the rope pull knows what 13 going 
on and knows there is a certa-in amount of risk in- 
vtolved if he or she gets too close to those partici- 
pating. If this person is participating in the events, 
he knows, also, what risks are involved. It's his de- 
cision; he's taking the chances. 

Getting back to tradition, certain traditions have 
been short-lived on this campus because certain mem- 
bers of the administration decided against them. 
Slowly, yet certainly, certain fraternity traditions 
have been given the "drop it or else" routine. And 
almost assuredly, certain other ones will get it in the 
near future. One short-lived tradition in particular 
between two fraternities made what appears to be 
its final appearance last spring. Members of the two 
fraternities were told that their tradition, which was 
in the form of a marathon race, was complained 
about to members of the town police department 
liecause it involved going through a part of the 
town. A later check found that there were no com- 
plaints to the town police department. You figure it 
out. 

Of course, there's always Spring Day. (I guf^as 
I .saw the la»t Spring Day when I was a freshman.) 
Tho killing of this tradition was our fault, however. 
Wt' killed a good thing by being ovor-anxioua and 
using it incorrectly. Oh, we'll probably ho plugging 
for It ;igain next spring, but whether wo got it or 
not will depend upon how tho .admin! tration fools 
about it's past history. In short, we'ro dead. 

How ni;niv nyon* traditions are going to fool the 
pro.ssuro ht'fori- tho \o,ir is out? Wo ran't tfll how, 
but lofs play it -siifi'! Lt-t's not give tho ho\ - .>\(m- at 
South Collo^o .inythini; to work on. I^t'-^ iiso tho.se 
traditions in tho right w.iy. .in.l thou, ;it N-ast it 
won't be our fault. Play it saf? and wo'll ko<i> 'em. 
If we lo3€ 'em, chances are it's our fault.

Harriers Trounce BU, UConn . . . 

Cross Country Team Remains 
Undefeated, Eyes Yan-Con Crown 



by DON 

The powerful and unbeaten 
UMass cross country team nosed 
out the University of Connecticut 
and wallox)ed Boston Univei-sity 
in the tri-meet held on Alumni 
Field last Friday. The final scores 
were UMass 25, UConn 30, and 
BU 83. 

Co-captains Pete Schwarz and 
Lee Chisholm again led the squad 
to victory, this time against the 
toughest competition they have 
faced thus far. 

Pete Schwarz placed first with 
an outstanding time of 22 min- 
utes and 52 seconds, only 34 sec- 
onds away from the course record 
of 22:18 set by Squeaky Horn in 
1955. 

KEELON-ATKINSON DRIVE 

With a display of reserve en- 
ergy on the final hill, Jim Keelon 
and Dick Atkinson both passed 
three UConn men to nail down 
5th and 6th spots. This drive 
broke up the closely packed 
UConn forces. 

Cohen and Frazier of Connecti- 
cut supplied the major interfer- 
ence to the UMass harriers. 
FOOTRICK EYES TITLE 

Coach Bill Footrick has high 
hopes of winning the Yankee Con- 



BAMFORD 

ference championship this year. 
However, the l-niversity of Maine 
and the University of Rhode Is- 
land will offer stiff competition 
before the end of the season. 
UCONN FROSH WIN 
The UConn freshmen beat both 
the UMass and BU frosh. The 
final tally was Connecticut 23, 
Mass 47, and BU no score. Al- 
though Hatch of BU took first 
place, BU was rendered no score 
because they failed to finish the 
required five men. 

The next meet will be a fi-esh- 
man and varsity meet at Spring- 
field College on October 23.

Injuries Take Heavy Toll 



CRIPPLED HOOTERS BLANKED 4-0 



by STEVE 

A crippled UMass soccer team 
gave it their all Saturday, but 
could not match the offensive 
charges of a strong Trinity team 
as they bowed 4-0. 

Trinity scored twice in both 
the second* and t'ourtn periods 
to gain the victory, with four 
different players breaking into the 
scoring column. 

The Redmen were very nuich 
underpar physically going into 
the game with Billy Burke, Jerry 
Steinberg, and Web Cutting all 
slowed down by various injuries, 
and with Paul ]Mailnian sidelined 
with a knee injury. As if this 
were not enough bad luck for 
coach Larry Briggs' hooters, 
several other key players were 
also injured during the game and 
loom as doubtful starters for 
Saturday's game against unde- 
feated Springfield. Fred Walker 
suffered a concussion in a oolHson 
with a Trinity player and is a 
very doubtful starter at right 
wing. 

Goalie Dick Williams was 
spiked in the leg and had to 
leave the game in favor of Dick 



NEEDEL 

r-afield, who was also injured in 
the late moments of the contest. 
Charlie Rcpeta, star halfback, 
\^as kirked in the ankle during 
the third period and \va.> f^n-cod 
out of the lineup. 

On the pleasant side of the 
picture was the return of Burke 
to thi> lineup. Although still 
hampered by a shoulder injury, 
Billy should be at close to full 
strength for the Springfield game. 

Captain Joe Morrone switched 
to halfback with sophs Steinberg 
and George Lust g\>ing most of 
the way at fullback. Steinberg 
continued to sparkle on the field 
and looks like a real top notch 
l)erformer for a couple of years 
to come, while Lust turned in the 
defensive gem of the day saving 
a goal with a last second kiickout 
of a shot that got by Scofield. 

The front line will be bolstered 
a little next Saturday with the 
return of Mailman and the 
equally fine performances of three 
*>ph3 against Trinity: Bill Har- 
ris, John Poignand and Joe Field 
who saw his first extensive serv- 
ice of the year. 



Varsity Football . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
Redmen were forced to punt after 
six plays. The Rams rolled from 
their own 45-yard line into the 
proTTiised land on eight plays. Po- 
land again carried the leather 
across tihe goal from the three 
after Adams had set it up with a 
20-yard gallop tb the 5. 

The Redmen bounced right back 
with another score of their own, 
sparked by two Ron Blume aeri- 
als. The first pass went to John 
O'Keefe for 27 yards and the 
other to Jim Shay for 12. Rich- 
ardson climaxed the 58-yard drive 
when he bucked over from the two 
yard line. It took the Redmen only 
six plays to cover the di.'^tanco. 
Gerry Walls ronvertpd and UMa.-s 
was back in th.- p:ame as the 
sdoroboard rfad Jo-iS. 

Late Score Clincher 

Late in the final canto, Rhody 
put the game in the bag when 
they earned a much-heeded f^rst 
down on a fifteen yard holding 
penalty against UMass. Adami? 
galloped 15 yards on .i . a, .i., 
Pearson and Mairs combined 



again on a pass to the Redmen 
one yard line, with Pearson buck- 
ing over for the score. Gerlach 
converted and the final was on 
the board, 27-13. 

The Redmen put on a final min- 
ute desperation drive that was 
really clicking as Blume tossed 
two pinpoint passes to send 
UMass from their own 30 to the 
Ram's 42 in two plays. Then 
with the defense nicely loosened 
up he sent Roger Kindred through 
on the fullback draw and he 
picked up 20 yards to the Rhody 
22 where he was clobbered hard 
enough to jar the ball loose and 
the Rams recovered the loose ball. 

That was "all she wrote" as

Little Redmen Look Sharp In Debut . . . 

Frosh Swamp Worcester 30-7; 
Delnickas Tallies Three Times 

by JOHN POMFRET and HAL GLASS 



The UMass freshman football 
team opened its season last Fri- 
day defeating pre\'iously unbeat- 
en Worcester Academy by a score 
of 30-7. The Little Redmen, 
paced by half-backs Jim Hick- 
man, Tom Delnickas, and quar- 
terback Jack Conway, revealed 
a powerful offense with tremen- 
dous depth. 

The frosh .scored early in the 
first period and never were head- 
ed, as they overpowered the Wor- 
cester Academy team. The most 
outstanding feature of the UMass 
club was the depth in its for- 
ward wall. As many as six re- 
liable men were available for ac- 
tion at the end, guard, and 
tackle positions. Tw<o i-ugged cen- 
ters were used alternately in the 
persons of Captain Charlie Theo- 
kus from Lowell and Vin Cap- 
uto of Winchester. 

Other linemen deserving spec- 
ial credit were tackles Dick 
Thornton and Ed Bumpus, and 
right end Jack Hamilton, who 
snagged a touchdown pass from 
Jack Conway. 

The scoring in the first quar- 
ter was limited to Conway's pass 
to Hamilton. The second quar- 
ter saw Tom Delnickas score 
twice on runs of 7 and 40 yards 
respectively. The half-time score 
staod at 18-0. 

The second half scoring was 
openetl on a 15 yard end run by 
Jimmy Hickman. The final tally 
was a case of who could outrace 
who, as- Tom Delnickas posted 
his third touchdown of the after- 
noon with a forty yard off-tackle 
run. 

Worcester Academy's only 
score came in the last period on 
i\ succession of passes. The 



touchdown pass was completed 
to Jack Luoma. The only conver- 
sion of the afternoon was made 
by Worcester making the final 
score 30-7. 

SIDELIGHTS 

The Frosh piled up 265 yards 
rushing, while holding their op- 
ponents to a meek 17 yarda. 
Coach Noel Reebenacker, in com- 
menting on the game said that 
he thought it was a fine team 
effort. He summed it up by say- 
ing, "We were just too big for 
them." 

This coming Thursday the Lit- 
tle Redmen travel to Boston to 
take on the Boston University 
Frosh. This game, without a 
doubt, shapes up as the biggest 
test of the season flor the prom- 
ising freshman team. Just what 
may be expected of the yearlings 
in the future might well be writ- 
ten in the kind of game they 
play this Thursday against fch* 
Terrier pups.

Med Club Hears 
Surgeon 



Doctor Joseph F. Baker, a

Springfield, spoke to about fifty 
students and faculty at the Pre- 
Med Club meeting held recently 
in the Student Union. 

To open his subject, "Introduc- 
tion to Plastic Surgery," Dr. 
Baker divided the medical pi-ofes- 
sion into the two main fields of 
medicine and surgery. He stated 
that plastic surgery became im- 
portant during World W^ar I be- 
cause of the great number of fa- 
cial injuries. World War II in- 
creased greatly the need for plas- 
tic surgeons. 

Dr. Baker emphasized that 
plastic surgery is not merely de- 
signed for beauty but that the 
main work of the plastic surgeon 
is reconstruction of traumatic in- 
juries, bums, cancer and ac-

O'Rourke To Stay At UM 

McGiiirk, Mather Squelch 
Rumors Of O'Rourke Firing 



by JOEL WOLFSON 

President J. Paul Mather 
and Warren P. McGuirk, Director 
of Athletics, have combined to 
oflficially squelch all campus 
rumors regarding the dismissal 
of Charlie O'Rourke, Head Coach 
of football at the university. 

"All I can say is that this 
rumor is the farthest thing 
from my mind," commented 
McGuirk last evening. 

Because of the limited number 
of player personnel available to 
him in recent years, ctontinued 
McGuiik, I don't believe that the 
present coach has had an op- 
portunity to prove that he is a 
good coach. 

When contacted for comment 
early last evening and informed 
of the rumor, President Mather 
emphatically stated, "I'll go 
along with Mr. McGuirk one 
hundred percent." 

Un*'! '"-:*^ -^:>ring thpie was 
little ..pp>it frurn the 

administration and very little 
support from the campus at 
large, he said. 

"We intend to do something 
about that situation," concluded 
President Mather. 

Rumors that this was to be 
Coach O'Ruurkt-'s last y*a2' have 
nltereti through the campus 
grape-vines gaining additional 
momentum as the Redmen's foot- 
ball record has worsened. The 
tales came from many sources 
even from as far away as the 
University of Connecticut. 

It is apparent that Coach 
O'Rourke has not had the num- 
ber of player personnel necessary 
to put forward a team repre- 
sentative of a university with 
4,700 students. 

Those fellows who do get out 
on that practice fobtball field 
ndght after night, and grive their 
entire physical and mental capaci- 
ties to the sport of amateur col- 
lege football deserve a great deal 
snore credit than the "Students

"Cyclist" Jenanyan 
Struck By Auto 

Ralph Jenanyan, class of '58, 
was injured late Monday after- 
noon when his bicycle was struck 
by an automobile at the bottom 
of Clark Hall. 

According to Daniel Shwartz, 
campus i)olice officer, the driver 
of the vehicle was Walter J. 
Wixon and his passenger was 
Frank Putnam. Both live at But- 
terfield. 

The Amherst ambulance rushed 
Jenanyan to the Cooley Dickin- 
i&on Hospital m Northampton for 
obsei'vation. 

According txj a repwrt received 
at the Dean's office yesterday 
morning, Jenanyan, while suffer- 
ing from cuts and bruise, has 
no hj<)k<n bone* and is resting 
wMnfortably. 



"Latitudes 
imniense; tlv 

of t.hem are inea^i'!." u.'if the 
words of President J. Paul 
Mather, as he extendeti a welcome 
to the"Unite<l Nations-like" gath- 
ering of Foreign Students and Fa- 
culty at a rofcption held in their 
honor. 

Doctor Wexler from the De- 
partment of Romance Langua- 
ges and advisor to the foreign 
students on campus made the 
initial welooome to the gathering 
with a heart-warming address to 
his brothers and sisters, and 
daughters and sons. 

He expressed his acknowledge- 
ment of the forty-eight foreign 
students welcoming them to the 
forty -eight "red, white and Flu" 
states. 

Commenting on the recent satel- 
lite program, he expressed his 
con\iction that the Ru.ssian Sput- 
nik is representative in that it 
says much and never listens to 
anyone. 

Dr. Wexler, acting as Master 
of Ceremonies, then proceeded to 
introduce the president. 

The deep meaning of Mather's 
statement was not lost on the 
gathering as he went on to ask 
the foreign representatives to 
exercise tolerance in dealing with 
us "peculiar Americans". 

Tn explanation he stated that 
the Administration is looking five 
years ahead, the faculty is look- 
ing for .something Ii»st ten years 
ago, and th<' stud.^it is left some- 
where in betwiM-n asking ques- 
tions.

Hatch Does Not 
Hatch 



by PETE WATSON 

Seven vaporizing units using 
Lyndane have accomplished what 
countless flyswatters were incap- 
able of — the elimination of the 
fly problem in the Hatch. 

Early this fall, the Hatch was 
the target of a concentrated at- 
tack by hordes of flies. These flies 
were not only a pix>blem for the 
students, who complained of ann- 
weariness from fly-swatting, but 
a serious problem for the Hatch's 
working forqe. 

For a tim^ they had to put 
Polyethylene sheets over the food 
to protect it. Students going 
through the lines would lift up 
the sheets to get food and, in 
some cases, not get it back quite 
right. As a I'esult the flies would 
'feast'. 

Coldness Threatens Flies 
Mr. Covan, assistant food di- 
rector at the SU, explained that 
the flies were a result of hot 
weather coupled with open win- 
dows. The vaporizers will be used 
until the colder weather kills off 
the flies, probably in another two 
weeks. 

Mr. Covan gave much of the 
credit for the fly elimination to 
the B^ntomology and Grounds de- 
]iaitni(nts saying, "I'm very 
plea.s«<l with the cooperation 
fro m the Entomology and 
Grounds departments in alleviat- 
ing the fly situation." 

I»i. Sweetman of the Entomol- 
oiry (i<partmcnt, assure<l the pa- 
per there will no longer be a fly 
inolOetii, but he added, "Next 
year may be another problem." 



Rodgers And Hammerstein 

Picked As '58 Premier 

By Doric Alviani 

by JACK WATSON 

A Rodgers and Hammerstein college premiere will be 
the 1958 Operetta Guild Production. 

Choice of the dramatic musical play Pipe Dream, was 
announced yesterday by the Operetta Guild Executive 
Board, and will open for a three day campus run on Thurs- 
day, February 27. Robert Leavitt, Executive Secretary of 
the Alumni, said that a location has not been chosen for the 
off campus performance. 

Following the campus run the show will go on the road 

UTider the auspices of the Asso- 
ciate Alumni. 

Pipe Dream opened on Broad- 
way in November of 1955 with 
one of the largest advance sales 
of any show in history. The ad- 
vance sale is reported to have 
been over 1.4 million dollars. 

Starring in the New York pro- 
duction were William Johnson, 
Helen Traubel, formerly of the 
Meti-opolitan Opera, Judy Tyler 
and Rufus Smith. 

Pipe Dream, following the 
modern pattern of musical plays 
does not have a chorus; each 
singer has a verbal part. 

Auditions for the cast of forty 
will be held on Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 24, from 1:00 to 5:00 and 
on the following Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 30, from 2-4 and 8-10.

all freshmen and interested 
upperclassmen. 

"We all have high hopes of 
prioducing a first class humor ma- 
gazine," Miss Holt stated, "and 
with a four issue schedule to ful- 
fill, we are going to need all the 
talent we can muster." 

Those attending will be asked 
to complete an activities card 
listing previous experience. 

"... But," Mi.Hs Holt con- 
cluded, "we don't rate experience 
quite as highly as the ability to 
work, and the will to write, write, 
write."

TEMPERANCE . . . 

About this time of year the senior is busy 
getting pictures taken, job hunting and be- 
ginning t') think about his future. 

The I'ciord of the past three anrl a half 
years is laid before him and before the whole 
campus. Is it one to be proud of? Will others 
notice it? Has he been a BMOC or a grind? 

Others say was he a Greek man? Was 
she a Scroll? Did he make Maroon Kev? 
Did she make Who's Who? 

But do they ever ask or notice if he were 
a Phi Kappa Phi or if she were a dean's 
list student? 

The answer is unfortunately too often 
NO. This seems to be a serious fault of our 
thinking as students. What are we in college 
for? 

It is true that we cannot chain ourselves 
to desks and devote our lives to the books 
but we cannot afford to completely sacrifice 
ourselves to extracurricular activities either. 

So much is offered to us and so much 
can be gained in the short four years we 
spend on this campus. We should not, we 
cannot let the numerous cultural and educa- 
tional opportunities that are set before us 
go by unnoticed. ^ 

Four years is a short space of time in a 
whole lifetime. We should be anxious to 
cram as much into our pointed little heads 
as we can during this period. 

So beware, freshman. Take a little advice 
from an old senior. Don't make the big mis- 
take of getting yourself swallowed up in the 
jaws of that big bad monster — the extra- 
curricular activity — don't miss the real 
meaning of college. 

Don't rush into things without being 
sure that you can afford the time you will 
have to devote to them. After this Saturday 
the Frosh women will be ready to begin 
finding "their place" in campus society. 

The secret is to look over and select one

Integration 

by TED SHEERIN 

By virtue of the new television time-machine invented by the 
UMass Physics Department, we now take you to September 17, 1975 
and the opening of school at the University of Massachusetts. The 
set is on and the prosram is about to be^in. Here is the announcer. 
Chris DiGiammarino, son of the former Faculty Resident at the old 
Chadbourne House. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term 
"Faculty Resident," a short explanation should suffice. A Faculty 
Resident was the device used in the old day.s to teach the students 
the arts of deception and espionaKe. The boys played a ^ame with 
their F.R. Each male student was required to sneak three freshman 
jfirls and two kegs of beer into his room without being detected by 
the Fac Res or his gestapo known as "Counsellors." 

The program is .starting now. so let's listen. 

"Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. This is Chris DiGiam- 
marino and here is the new.s, brought to you through the courtesy of 
the UMass Rocket Club which is sponsoring a beer party on Mars 
this weekend. And now the news. 

BOSTON, Gov. Orval Keogh this afternoon ordered the Mass. 
National Guard to surround all thirty girls' dormitories at the l^ni- 
versity of Mass. when school opens tomorrow. This came as a sur- 
prise move on the heels of a Federal Court order stating that dis- 
crimination in dormitory assignments based on sex alone represented 
a violation of the constitutional rights of the students. It was de- 
clared that this discriminatory policy violated the spirit of the "equal 
protection" clause of the 1 1th Amendment and the "right to life, 
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" clause of the Constitution it- 
self. Gov. Keogh, who has been noted as a reactionary in the fight 
of the liberal Southern block of Congress for this civil rights measure, 
stated that although Congress could pass laws regulating the actions 
of our citizens, it could never change the customs of our sovereign 
Commonwealth. He was further quoted as saying, "Congress can 
change our laws, but it can never change our minds!" 

WASHINGTON, The President of the United States, J. Paul 
Master, has been quoted as saying that he does not want to use force 
to protect the rights of UMass co-eds to live in dormitories of their 
choice but, if necessary, he will instruct his Chief of Staff, Gen. Shan- 
non McCone to order units of the U.S. Army or the Flying Redmen 
to protect the rights of our citizens. 

AMHERST. A meeting of the segregation-minded female suprem- 
acists, led by Dean Helen Curtin, is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. tonight 
in Barselotti's. Miss Curtin. who is .scheduled to appear in District 
Court on Monday to answer charges of obstructing the orderly inte- 
gration of the dormitories, has stated that she and the other segre- 
gationists would resist this new Federal directive with every means 
at their command short of violence. 

LITTLE ROCK. The Little Rock City Council passed a resolution 
at their meeting tonight condemning the narrow-minded attitude of 
Northern reactionaries in the integration dispute. You may remember 
that Little Rock was the scene of the first successful integration of 
dormitories four years ago. Since thai lime men and women students 
have lived side by side in peace and harmony without any major 
incidents. 

Well. I guess that just about wraps up our news tonight. Tune 
in again tomorrow al Ihe same lime when the news will be brought 
to you by the UMass T.G.I.F. Club.

CoUcjiiiui is.-iuo of Oft. 11, and t<> part of its editorial of the same date. 

In r<>vio\v of what ha.s l.oon .said about racial ro.striction in the

Collegian and Mr. Bacon further confused what is alrea<ly sufficiently 
confusing by changing to the technicality that restrictive covenants- 
private agreements imposing racial restrictions — arc legal. 

The facts are that such agreements are legal only in the sense 
that there is no penalty for meeting them. But it is also true that 
these agreements cannot be enforced — either here or anywhere in the

United States. So, if you buy a horse, and the deed 
has a restrictive covenant against Jews or Negroes, 
(or men from Mars, for that matter) you can go 
ahead and sell it to anyone you can get to buy it 
even if it falls within the restricted category. And 
by the same token, if anyone says he cannot .sell a 
house to you because of a restrictive covenant, you 
can tell him he is talking through his hat. 

indoubtedly a town as a legal entity is not res- 
ponsible for this situation and can do nothing about 
it. In so far as the people of a town attempt to con- 
tinue this antediluvian attitude, tlie.v are pi"oj)ei"ly 
blamable.

Dear Sirs and .Madames of the University Spokes- 
piece: 

On Saturday, the proud sophomore class of idiots 
showed that any undertaking of activities where 
spectators are allowed will have to be policed by 
severe control of campus authorities! 

The spontaneous reaction of the losing sopho- 
more side in the rope pull galloped to one side to 
gallantly tie the rope to a tree in the great Ameri- 
can tradition of fair play (?) by cheating. Heedless 
of the crowd, the rope swept through approximately 
100 people that came at the bidding of the radio 
announcer during the game: "Don't forget the an- 
nual rope pull, folks, at the campus pond." He ne- 
glected to mention that one takes his life in his 
hands to watch the juvenile delinquents on the cam- 
pus in any activities. 

The rope swept through the crowd like a scythe, 
mowing down children, adults, and influential alumni. 
I don't think it was funny! That a class can totally 
disregard the results of their efforts to cheat is 
typical of, I hope, a minority on campus. An elderly 
man and his wife were thrown to the ground, sever- 
ly injuring the man's leg, his wife was limping, 
several small children were crying, several people 
were forced into the pond, and the ones who never 
saw the rope were the unfortunate. Fate was on the 
lucky side Saturday, it could have been worse. 

What is the solution ? Does every activity require 
a waiting ambulance to cart off the spectators? Do 
the police or student council, (where were they), 
have to slap the students on the WTist with admon- 
ition of "naughty, naughty" on any and every move- 
ment ? During the coming "Dad's Day," let the 
announcer forewarn the people, "Fanatics are loose 
on the campus, look out for your safety, the stu- 
dents are running wild." Has anyone representing 
the responsible party (the sophomore class) inquired 
or apologized to the injured people for the idiotic 
actions ? 

Luckily the scandal papers never got wind of it. 
Can you imagine how the Daily Record would blast 
the university in exaggerated headlines to increase 
their circulation! 

It is about time for some serious stock taking 
for some of the children on the campus! Sit back 
and gloat over your foolish actions and the resulting 
publicity for an institution of learning! Grow up. 
little people.

Wake Up, ±iiile Sputnik 

- Moonwatchers Miss Moon 



Sputniks will be Sputniks. 
Bracing the biting cold and 
shrugging off all worry of Asian 
flu, about 75 intrepid moon- 
watchers from Butterfield and 
Van Meter dorms turned out at 
7 Monday night to witness the 
rise of Sputnik over the horizon. 

"We \v?.nt Sputnik! We want 
Sputnik!" the Van Meter fresh 
shouted. 

"You can't have him. He's 
ours!" retorted the Butterfield 
crew. 

But Sputnik did not sputter 
over Snob Hill.

casts, the Russian satellite was 
supposed to have appeared for 
four minutes at 7:05, as it moved 
in a northerly direction 200 miles 
off the Massachuusetts coast. 
Earlier, newspapers had recorded 
the time of visibility in the 
Amherst region at 7:19. 

Clad mostly in .skimpy khakis 
and T-shirts, the moonwatchers 
.shivered in the wind, their com- 
monts ranging from a fearful 
"Where's the little green man?" 
to a dubious "Are you sure that's 
the right direction?" and a 
sneering "Aw, that's just a star 
flickering." 

One ohakespearean poet, buried 
in a gaudy red Mackinaw, 
clutched a camera to his heart 
and moaned, "Oh, Sputnik? 
Where art thou. Sputnik?" 

Another moonwatcher mur- 
mured wistfully, "I dreamt I 
saw Sputnik la.st night in my 
Mai — " 

"Peanuts I Popcorn" interrupted 
the rest of his comment, as a 
more enterprising, down-to-earth 
moonwatcher barker, "Get your 
cracker] acks here I"

thing you nood to mako

Meanwhile a red glow tinted 
the heavens above, when the 
northern lights became visible to 
the naked eye at 7:10. 

But one moonwatcher quickly 
pounced upon the only true celes- 
tial phenomena of the evening 
with a sharp "They're just burn- 
ing stuff over in the dump.** 

Two headlights blinded the 
moonwatchers momentarily when 
a car swerved around the comer 
of Butterfield Drive a minute 
later. 

"Hey, there's two Sputnik's 
now I" someone screamed. 

At 7:15 a light danced across 
the sky. 

"We see Sputnik! Here he 
comes!" shouted the Van Meter 
frosh. 

The Butterfield crew stretched 
their necks, and then, crestfallen, 
yelled back, "Naaw, they're just 
planes." 

Minutes ticked by, the glow of 
anticipation simmered, and by 
7:20 most of the moonwatchers 
had forsaken Sputnik and with- 
drawn to their studies. 

Only five from Butterfield re- 
mained to maintain their vigil. 
After a while, they too grew dis- 
heartened when their self-ap- 
pointed captain, a wide, 6-foot 
junior with unruly blonde hair, 
turned away from his telescope. 



grumbling, "That wasn't a girls' 
dorm. That was Chadbourne!" 

At that moment another plane 
flew over. The captain glanced 
meaningfully at his mates. They 
looked back at him. Not a word 
was spoken. But they understood. 
"Hey! Hey! There he is! 
There's Sputnik!" they bellowed 
in unison. 

"Where? Where?" echoed a 
chorus of voices from the dorm. 

The Butterfield quintet pointed 
their fingers to the sky. 

Window.s banged open — the Isi, 
the 2nd floors — and then, the 3rd, 
the 4th. Heads popped out — ten, 
twenty, thirty — all along the 
front side of Butterfield dorm. 

Again, raucous yells sliced the 
night air. "We want Sputnik! We 
want Sputnik!" 

Seventeen moonwatchers, five 
half-dresied. rushe<l out of the 
dorm and climbed the little peak 
behind Butterfield. 

"Where is he? Whore is he?" 
they piped up, "Where is Sput- 
nik?" 

Hands on their hips, the five 
instigators staggered backward, 
roaring with laughter. 

"A\vw\vw, too bad, you just 
missed him," they chuckled. 

Disgusted, the Butterfield moon- 
watchers shook their fists wrath- 



fully, stamped their feet indig- 
nantly, and shambled back to 
their dorm, muttering, 'There is 
no Santa Claus, there is no Easter 
bunny, and THERE IS NO SPUT- 
NIK I" 

(Editor's Note: The above 
story is accurate and based upon 
actual notes recorded by a Col- 
legian representative who was 
an eyevHtness at the scene.)

The UConns, their grid machine 
.starting to mesh after a disap- 
pointing start, recovered two 
Maine fumbles in the fourth 
quarter to insure a 19-0 victory. 
It was a (i-0 game before end Rod 
Vernet recovered a Bear bobble 
in the end zone, and Don Over- 
lock pounced on an^other at the 
one-yard line. This alert play 
gave Connecticut its second con-

There are no Yankee Confe-

Delaware at Storrs, and although 
the UConns upset the Plighting 
Blue Hens 26-14 last year, they 
figure to be short enders in this 
renewal of the series.

Brooks still retains a slim margin to lead the Dorm 
League but Baker B is close on their heels, only 1 point out 
of first place. The only other threat to the close race be- 
twi'vu tht' two is Ivewis, who would have to sweep through 
tlie lest of their games while Brooks and Baker would have 
to lose one and two games respectively.

Kappa Sig made Lambda Chi 
its eighth consecutive gridirbn 
\ictim when they trounced them 
thirty-three to six in an inter- 
mural contest played Monday 
night. 

The dead-eye passing of Ed 
Gilbedy once again proved to be 
the deciding factor in the Kappa 
Sig triumph. Bob Norman and 
Tom Brousseau made a couple of 
very fancy snags of Gilbody 
touchdown tosses. Gilbodv also 



passed to Brosseau, Dube, and 
Gauzzo for the three extra points. 

Norman and Bixjusseau each 
crossed the goal line twice for 
the victors. Bill Gauzzo tallied 
the other Kappa Sig score. 

Kappa Sig's next foe will be 
third place Phi Sigma Kappa. 
The game will be played tonight 
at sLx-thirty; that is it will be 
played if KS is able to field a

SCIENCE MADE SIMPLE: No. 1 

Though this column is intonded to he a source of inno- 
cent nierriniont for all sexes imd not to concern itself with 
weighty matters, I l:a\e ashed my sponsors, the makers 
of Marll>oro, whether 1 might not, from time to time, 
use this space for a short lesson in science. "Makers," I 
said to them, "nuKht I not. from time to time. u>e this 
space for a short lesson in science?"" 

They agreed with many a kindly smile, the makers of 
Marll)oro, for they are the most agreealile of men. Their 
benevolence is due in no small measure to the cigarettes 
tliey smoke, foi Marli)oro is a cigarette to soothe the most 
savage of brea.sts. I refer not only to the flavor which, its 
everyone knows, is a delight to the palate, but also to 
the Marlboro container. Here is no fiendishly contrived 
device to fray the fingernails and rasp the nerves; here, 
instead, is a Hip-top box that opens like a charm, and 
inside you find a handy red tape to lift out the cigarette.s 
with ea.se and dispatch. Add to all this the be.st filter ever 
made, and you can see that yoii get a lot to like. 

Let us begin our series of .science le.s.sons with chemis- 
tr>'. It is fitting that chemistry should be the first, for it 
is the oldest of sciences, having been discovered by Ben- 
jamin Iranklin in IGS H.( '. when an apple fell on his jiead 
while lie was shooting the breeze with Pythagoras one 
day outside the Acropolis. (The rea.son they were outside 
the Acropoli>; and not inside was that Pythagorits had been 
tiirow n out for drawing right triangles all over the walls.)

They had .several meetings outside the Acropolis, but 
finally Franklin .said, "Look, Pythagoras, this is nothing 
against you, see, but I'm no youngster anymore and if 
I keep laying around on this wet grass with you, I'm 
liable to get the bri'akbone fever. I'm going inside." 
Pythagoras, friendless now, moped around Athens for 
awhile, then drifted off to Monaco where he married a 
girl named Harriet Sigafoos and went into the chuck-a- 
luck busineas. (He would certainly be forgotten today had 
not Shakespeare written "Vou Know Me, Al.") 

Rut I digress. We w ere begiiuiing a discu.ssion of chemis- 
try, and the U'st way to begin is with fundamentals. 
Chemicals are divided into elements. There are four: air, 
earth, fire, and water. Any number of delightful combina- 
tions can l)e made from these element.s, such an firewater, 
dacron, and chef's salad. 

Chemicals can l>e further divide<l into the classes of 
explosive and non-explosive. A wise chemist always 
touches a match to his chemicals before he begins an 
exjx'riment.

*'Ra]ph Jenanyan, class of '58, was injured late Monday 
afternoon when his bicycle was struck by an automobile at 
the bottom of Clark Hall," is an inaccurate statement, as it 
appeared in the Collegian, Wednesday, Oct. 23. A collision 
did occur between a bicycle and an automobile at the bottom 
of Clark Hill. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1957 



Cited for displaying "quick and 
positive thinking," Walter J. 
Wixon and Frank Putnam aided 
Ralph Jenanyan after he was in- 
jured in an autiomobdle-bicycle 
collision at the Clark Hill inter- 
section late Monday afternoon. 

Accompanied by Putnam, 
Wixon, driver of the vehicle, was 
just rounding the corner to go 
up the hill, as Jenanyan, class of 
'59, was cycling down from his 
residence at Mills. 

The two collided, and the front 
wheel of the bicycle wedged bet- 
ween the bumper and the back 
left fender of the car, spinning 
Jenanyan artound underneath his 
bicycle. 

Both seniors, Wixon and Put- 
nam leaped out of the car to help 
Jenanyan, who, Putnam said, 
"was complaining about his back 
and leg." 

Taking this into consideration, 
continued Putnam, we did not 
move Jenanyan, but pulled the 
bicycle off him instead. 

"Ralph tried to get up three 
times," Wixon added, "and final- 
ly, Putnam had to hold him 
down." 

Three automobiles arrived on 
the scene minutes later, and while 
Donald Ames, '59. went to tele- 
phone Dr. Robert W. Gage, North 
Pleasant St., George Mellon Su- 
perintendent of the Ground* De- 
partment, directed traffic. 

Wife of the Provost, Mrs. 
Shannon McCune, the third party, 
said, "The rest of us stayed to be 
sure the doctor and a-mbulance 
•ame for the boy." 

Tucking a jacket under Jenan- 
yan's head, Putnam also drape<l 
a blanket over the bicyclist, 
Wixon said. 

"Everybody was very quiet 
and considerate," announced Mrs. 
McCune. "and we saw that the 
boy received another blanket from 
my car." 

Shortly afterward. Dr. 
arrived and adminstered a 
tive to .Jenanyan. 

"I applaud the wisdom of the 
boys for not moving the injured 
student," the doctor stated. 

It is always wiso to leave a 
person alonp. he mntinnod. r<!- 
pecially whon tluMi' is a (Hipstion 
as to \vhoth*M' ho might have a

Daniel Schwartz, the campus 
police officer who investigated the 
accident, backed Dr. Gage's com- 
mendation, saying, "The action of 
the students was very good."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COF.LEGIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 23. 1937 



PARKING TICKETS 

A very interesting development has 
reached our offices from our UConn cousins 
to tlie south. It was reported in the October 
8 issue of the Connecticut Daily Campus 
that the state legislature has recently passed 
a new plan whereby all fines from UConn 
parking violations will be returned to the 
University, and that a scholarship fund will 
be established with the revenue. (Last year 
$7,428 was paid out in parking tickets!) 

Jolly good idea, all the Umies exclaim 
in unison! Why don't we have this system 
here? We wouldn't mind paying out parking 
fines (well, not as much, that is) if the money 
were going toward a scholarship fund. 

Well, where does our money go to, you 
ask. A Collegian reporter discovered the 
answer to this question in an interview with 
Provost McCune yesterday. McCune disclosed 
that the revenue from our parking tickets 
reverts to the General Fund in Boston, and 
that this could only be changed by a new 
law passed by the legislature — just as the 
Connecticut law was changed. 

The Provost expressed his opinion that 
"if fines were direct from student to student 
it would result in a better sense of respon- 
sibility for our own protective services." 

Perhaps all UMies have sympathies sim- 
ilar to the chap in the column to the right — 
eh wot, ducky?

DRIVE NOT OVER 

Probably all of you have been approached 
in the course of the last ten days by students 
who are members of the Blood Drive com- 
mittee. Each member of this committee has 
given of his time and effort so that you may 
help in this worthwhile progi-am. The last 
cards solicited personally were turned in 
to the chairman earlier this week, and the 
committee wishes to express their sincere 
thanks for the wonderful cooperation they 
have received from the campus at large. 

However, the drive is not yet over. Yes- 
terday, it was reported that the father of 
one of our fellow students has a disease 
which will require him to have frequent 
blood transfusions. 

This final appeal is made to those of you 
who can give blood and who have not as 
yet signed a pledge card to do so. Pledge 
cards are available at the desk of the Stu- 
dent Union lobby for those of you who wish 
to give . . . 



WHO'S THE REKOJ? 

The following was noticed on a few place- 
cards in the Hatch with the original print- 
ing, "Remember the Neewollah" crossed 
out: "Remember the Omala." (Allright, 
gang, who's the rekoj?)

65 UMies Turn Out For 
Leeds Hospital Program 

by MARION FELTON and DAVID SHEPARDSON 

Travelling by truck and in 8 cars, 65 university student.s migrated 
to Leeds Veterans Hospital Wednesday evening for a training session 
which will qualify them to work with the mentally ill patients of 
Leeds. The Umies joined students from Amherst, Smith, and Mt. 
Holyoke to constitute a group of over 12.'> for the first of two train- 
ing sessions, both of which are required before contact with mental 
patients is allowed. Twenty five university students completed this 
course in the spring and «re now serving in Ward 2 of the hospital 
with a program of dancing, cards, checkers, and other games. 

Mr. Frank X. Keating, Chairman of the Volunteer Service Com- 
mittee opened the program by welcoming the students and introduc- 
ing Dr. John D. McCullough, manager of the hospital, who spoke of 
the great importance of the volunteer service program in the overall 
therapy of the hospital. He stated that the patients needed the con- 
tacts with society to help them learn acceptable social patterns. Mr. 
Keating stated the difficulty of staflf members in helping in this area, 
because in the minds of the patients, the staff is considered authority. 
The patients feel that "if it weren't for you, I could go home." How- 
ever, in the volunteer, the patient sees the interest of the outside 
world. Volunteers are accepted and imitated by the patients. 

Keating also stated that in giving their service students can 
learn much about mental health, and contribute a great deal to the 
community's understanding of this problem. 

The Psychology Department under the direction of Dr. Isidor W. 
Scherer and his staff have given the group a series of psychological 
tests to be used in placing the students in areas of service. Some 
of the opportunities for service which will be available to thi= group 
will include ward programs similar to the one in which the present 
UM group is participating, organizing bowling tournaments, and so- 
cial dancing programs. 

The other part of this training session will be held next Wednes- 
day when the group will again leave Skinner at 6:4.5. Only those com- 
pleting both parts of the training program will be eligible for service 
this year. The next complete training program will be held in the 
spring. 

The campus group is being sponsored by the Campus Religious 
Council through the Northampton Chapter of the American Red Cross. 

Mrs. Charles Cohoon. American Red Cross V.A. Volunteer Service 
Representative, closed the meeting by pointing out the need for reg- 
ularity of participation once committed to the program. Patients 
recognize the students and learn to look forward to their visit. A dis- 
appointment for a mentally ill person is much more serious than for 
an average person. Most students from UM will participate in a pro- 
gram every other week. 

The group has been gathered by the Steering Committee chosen 
from those trained in the spring session. Members of the committee 
are Judith Abrams, Chairman, Dorothy Corfitzen, Carol Luftman, 
Marlene Sandler, David Shepardson. Donald Hiller. and Janice Zeh. 



LETTER TO THE EDITOR... 

To the Literary (?) Editor of Ya-Hoo: 

I do not choose to go beyond the realm of understanding in my 
criticism, but this does concern intellertualism which apparently is 
out of your r.Tng*> of romprehfnsion. Whnt I cannot understand is 
how a litfMury editor ran frown upon thr« fust aesthetic glimmer 
among students here at U of M. To me, this seems a personification 
of our mediocrity. 

What I have found in Satch'a article. "To a P.^eudo,'* i.s .simply 
a recapitulation of an old story retold once again in the form of .satire. 
Faster B'rer Bear runs and louder he shout.s; at last Bear gets a hold 
of B'rer Rabbit. Being quick witted, B'rer Rabbit exclaims to the big 
lummox holding him, "B'rer Bear, do anything, but don't throw me 
in the briar patch." Naturally the dull-witted B'rer Bear does just 
that; brother rabbit lands in the middle of the briar patch and goes 
merrily on hia way. Our friend bear is very disgruntle.! and disap- 
pointed in himself. He rationalizes by telling him.self that the rabbit 
was a cheater, when actually the bear was merely outwitted. The 
point is that the sharper one outwits the obti.?e who invariably retali- 



Letter ... 

ates by minimizing the integrity of the wiser. Read 
this twice; it is the crux of the matter. 

"B'^rer Satch" seems sure that he is being swin- 
dled by a giant shell game in which there "ain't any 
pea" under any of the shells — i.e., Satch indicates 
that our intellectuals are merely a "pseudo-shell" 
with no insides. 

The "phoney" affectations that Satch speaks 
of are indisputably a sign of falseness; but, what 
he observes is more accurately termed inception 
intellect — the period in development when a person 
begins an honest intellectual curiousness (unfortun- 
ately, may I add, some never reach this point). 
Accordingly, the "intellectualism" that you are ob- 
serving is not hypocrisy, but rather the threshold to 
a condition far, far superior to its antecedent. 

Next time, don't be so hasty when deciding 
whether there's a pea under the shell; the game is 
not as simple as it looks. 

Dick Herman '60 



Who Put Out Sputnik? 

Has anyone seen Sputnik lately? If you have 
missed it in the heavens during the pa.st few days, 
call the Graniteville (pop. 1,200) fire department. 
A few days ago a strange red glow was sighted in 
the northeast corner of town. Out of the fire house 
roared the shiny red engine, equipped with two 
eighteen-foot extension ladders to put out the blaze. 
It was a harder job than they expected — because the 
"blaze" was the Northern Lights (or was it Sput- 
nik?). 



Campus Comment 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(The ideas and opinions expressed in this column 
are tJwse entirely of Mr. Kominski and do not ne- 
cessarily express the opinion of the staff of the 
(Collegian.) 

If you haven't had it yet, chances are that you 
are going to have it sooner or later. I'm speaking, 
of course, of the flu, or at least some variety of it. 

At the moment, the iiiruiuaiy is fiHed with fe- 
males and the Student Union is rapidly filling up 
with males who are suffering from some form of 
virus. Many ])eople have been sent home for the 
same reason, and emergency infirmaries have been 
set up in some of the girls' dorms. It really looks 
bad. It appears as if the university is preparing 
for the worst. 

So far, we've been lucky. Only about 2% of the 
enrollment is occupying the infirmary and Union 
beds, but a good many more students than that are 
suffering from one kind of virus or another. Don't 
forget those who have gone home, and those who 
have already had the "bug" and still have some 
after-effects. But, most of all, don't forget those 
who are on the verge of getting the flu — the stu- 
dents who are walking around campus looking as 
if they were ready to drop any minute. These people 
belong in bed. 

Why aren't they? Maybe some of them don't 
realize how sick they are. But that can't be the 
complete answer. How about classes? Maybe well 
find the answer there. Maybe some of these people 
cannot afford to miss certain of their clas.ses because 
falling behind at this point would mean an all-night- 
er every night of the week to catch up. Result: 
fatigue and sickness again. 

Oh, I know there are many who would jump at 
the chance to land in the infirmary so they could 
get out of class. Maybe I would myself. But there 
.still are many who cannot afford to miss their 
cla.s.ses. As far as I can see, ihere is one possible 
solution. 

Close down the school for a week, and let every- 
one go home and get a good rest. 

Perhaps there will be many students who won't 
care about the rest — they'll use the vacation to go 
out and have a good time — and come back in worse 
condition than ever. But then again, there will be 
those who WILL rest — and who WILL benefit great- 
ly from such a vacation. 

Whether or not the admini.sitration will consider 
this action is not known. Let'.s hope they do ... or 
have already. Let's hopo tliaf wp'll get that well- 
needed vacation.

Flu Halts Northeastern 
Contest: Soccer And 
Stockhridge Tilts Off 



This weekend's sports' calen- 
dar has a big red CANCELLED 
stamped across it thanks to a 
certain "ASIAN INVASION" 

disorder now affecting several 
UMass atheletes. The flu-like in- 
fectibn caused the cancelling of 
the soccer and football games 
slated for this weekend.

Associate Sports Editor 

tieth game of their 75 year-old 
series. These ivy league en- 
counters are noted for their very 
close scores. There has not been 
more than one touchdown separa- 
ting the teams in the last six 
contests. 



Fifteen of Mr. O'Rourke's 
slim football squad are on the 
disabled list. Twelve of these 
have been knocked out by the 
flu; Dick Riley has a shoulder in- 
jury, Bob Amerault has knee 
trouble, Bob Reynolds is suffer- 
ing from knee, leg and foot in- 
juries. 

Those benched by the bug are 
Bob DeValle, Jim Shea, Bill 
Goodwin, Lou Verichione, John 
Terro, Don Mahan, Guy Monttosi, 
Russ Devereau, Phil Beradi, 
Win MacDonald, Harrj' Wilson, 
and Bob Ferriani. 

Also ailing are Coach Dave 
Ingram and scouts Earl Lorden 
and Dick Garber. Coach Larry 
Briggs and several of his hooters 
have also been laid low by the 
flu. Their game with Springfield 
College, slated for Saturday 
afternoon, has been cancelled. 

Bill Footrick and his cross- 
country trotters seem to have the 
highest resistance to Asian flu, 
among the athletically inclined 
that is. 

Footrick has only one man, 
Jimmy Keelon, sidelined with the 
bug. Tommy Flynn has been 
hospitalized because of an opera- 
tion on a toe which was injured 
this past summer. Jimmy Wrynn 
and Tommy Knowlton were not 
up to par Wednesday, but could 
have run had it been necessary. 



UMass atheletes are not the 
only ones fighting the flu. The 
UNH-Brandeis game slated for 
Saturday has been cancelled and 
Army coach, Red Blaik, has lost 
two starters and three reserA'es 
for his game against Virginia on 
Saturday. 

Those of you who had your 
hearts set on seeing a football 
game this week can still see one. 
A very highly rated Amherst 
College eleven will entertain 
Wesleyan at Pratt Field Saturday 
afternoon in what should prove to 
be a very coloi'ul game. The 
starting time is 1:30. 

For those who plan to be in 
Bostion this weekend, Harvaixl 
and Dartmouth meet in the six-

On the national scene Notre 
Dame-Pittsburgh clash booms up 
as the game of the week. Seventh 
ranked Notre Dame is a one 
touchdown favorite over Pitt. 

The "Irish" have now been 
steadily climbing up the grid-rat- 
ing ladder. You never can tell, 
they may be the ones t/o hand 
front-ininning Oklahoma its fiirst 
setback in many moons. 

Rhode Island, last weekend's 
conqueror over UMass, will have 
their work cut out for them when 
they face a very powerful Bi"<o\vn 
Saturday, The Rams' ace backs, 
Jim Adams and Jim Pearson will 
have to be a bit shaiper than 
they were against the Redmen if 
they are to come out on top of 
the Bruins. 

***** 

Northeasterly is shopping 
around for an opponet to play 
this weekend; Brandeis looks like 
the best bet to fill the bill since 
their would-be opponents, UNH, 
are also flu-ridden. 

Stockbridge has its second 
.straight cancelled because of 
Worcester Academy's inability tto 
field a team. The "Aggies" have 
won the only game they have 
played this season. 

Westfield's Red Kowalczyk 
leads the nation in rushing ac- 
cording to a "UP" release, Kowa- 
lczyk has carried the mail a total 
of two hundred and twenty-four 
yards in three games this season. 
Ohio State's Don Clark is second 
with two hundred and fourteen 
yards in two games. 

Fred Brandel, a ninteen year- 
old sophomore guard from Pur- 
due received the AP's "Lhieman 
of the Week" Award for his work 
in Saturday afternoon's upset of 
Michigan State. His recovery of 
a Spartan fumble deep in Michi- 
gan territory was the turning 
point of the game. 

BU's Steve Sinko will have 
three Sophs on the field when his 
Terriers line up against the Cru- 
saders of Holy Cross Saturday 
afternoon. These .Sophs will be re- 
placing injured BU players. . . . 

One favorable thing tjo come 
out of all these injuries and sick- 
nesses is the pxix:'rience that a 
great many young gridiron play- 
ers are getting.

BU Stops Frosh ■ . . 

Redmen Fall 
Before B.U. 
Terriers 12-0 

by J. C. FIELDS 

Coach Noel Reebenacker's 
frosh squad was felled first by the 
flu and then at the hands of the 
Terriers 12-0 at Boston yestei-day 
afternoon. 

The little Redmen held their 
own for the first half of the 
game but B.U. tallied twice in 
the second half and that put a 
stop to the brief undefeated sea- 
son for the tribe. 

In the third period Gordon 
Andrews took up 34 yards on 3 
carries. The 70 yard march came 
on the kickoff which opened the 
second half, Charlie Butland 
capped the drive with a plunge 
over center position from the one 
yard line. 

In the final quarter, a 52 yard 
pass play from Ed Deane to 
Andrews gave the terriers their 
insurance score. The little Red- 
men looked sharp but the wet 
field and flu casualties took their 
toll. 

Contacted after the game Coach 
Reebenacker said that he noticed 
his players definitely had some 
Sort of flu-like infections on the 
return trip from Boston and they 
went to the infirmary' upon their 
amval at the University. 

Unable to make the trip were 
Bob Puddister. Herb Wells, Dave 
Swepsoo. Jack Strezpek and Jack 
Jordan. 

A pat on the back goes out to 
Richard Hloss and Jack Conway 
who both played a fine game in 
the face of grippe infections 
which gave then undue discom- 
fort.

Womens Sports Section 



by SHEILA McLAUGHLIN 
Women's Sports Editor 



The lady athletes on campus 
have gained little recognition for 
their efforts thus far this fall. 
The bang of hockey sticks and the 
twang of bows has been scarcely 
heard although girls' intramural 
sports have taken place each 
afternoon since early September. 

Field hockey, archery, and ten- 
nis have been offered for the fall 
season by W.A.A., who organizes 
the events and teams. All girls 
are eligible to play and teams are 
combined to include freshmen and 
upper classmen. 

In other years indoior sports 
were proWded for those who dis- 
like fresh air. However, this year 
because of the loss of Drill Hall, 
which was formerly used for 
women's phys ed, facilities are no 
Longer available. Outdoor sports 
have l>een very successful, never- 
theless. 

The field hockey team is 
taking part in a Play Day at 
Wellesley College tomorrow. Col- 



lege teams from all parts of N. E. 
will compete. 

On Tuesday, Oct. 29, the team 
will go to Mount Holyoke to play. 
It will travel to UConn. on Wed- 
nesday, the 30th. You see, the 
girls are kept almost as busy as 
the boys. 

In about two weeks the winter 
siwrts season will begin, offering 
basketball, badminton, swimming 
and bowling. 

Again because of lack of faci- 
lities, the winter season will be 
hampered somewhat. Basketball 
and badminton will be played in 
the Cage each weekday from 12 
to 1. Bowling is held at the 
Union in the evening. 

Swimmers, who up to now have 
been left with a waterless pool, 
are going to start work within 
two weeks. Upperclass Naiad try- 
outs will be held within a week 
or two, and later in the season 
there vrill be an intramural swim 
meet.

Sig Ep Remcdns On Top 

Sig Ep met an unexpectedly 
rou,gh AEPi team in a game 
played Tuesday night. Both 
teams were held scoreless in the 
first half with great defensive 
play by both "Satch" Sanfield 
for AEPi and Ronxa-no and Reh- 
bein for Sig Ep. In the second 



half AEPi took the opening 
kickoflF all the way to lead 7 to 
0. Sig Ep then began to play 
like the team of past games, with 
scores by Tuttle, Mann, and Ro- 
mano. Extra points were added 
by Doherty and Tuttle. Final 
score Sig Ep 20 AEPi 7. 

Sig Ep's remaining games are 
with iSAE, TEP, TKE, and PMD. 
Leading the league, Sig Ep ijb 
undefeated and untied in play 
thus far, but the remaining 
games will be tough ones.

Spencer Speaks 
On Music, Music, 

Music 

by MARY FENTON 

Chalconer P. Spencer, a Wes- 
leyan University instructor, took 
"Composers and Composing: The 
Pix>blems of Musical Composi- 
tion," as the subject of his lec- 
ture, delivered Wednesday eve- 
ning in the Governor's Lounge 
of the S. U. The lecture was 
sponsored by the Fine Arts 
Council of the University and 
was the fii-st of many such lec- 
tures to be presented under 
their auspices during the cur- 
rent school year, 

Mr. Spencer's original musical 
work was done for the San Fran- 
cisco Consei-vatory of Music and 
the University of California at 
Los Angeles. For this region, 
however, his most noteworthy 
compositions are Suite for Organ, 
composed for the dedication of 
the new organ at Helen Hills 
Chapel at Smith College, 1957, 
and his setting to music, E. E. 
Cummings' poem Spring.

LEE CHISHOLM '58 

I think there is definitely a 
lack of interest on the campus. 
The athletic department thinks 
that by paying the "Canteen 
Kids" it will lead to more enthus- 
iasm and reduce football apathy. 
I think there is apathy in gen- 
eral to sports on campus, but I 
can see no solution to the prob- 
lem. 
STEVE KAPL/NSKY '60 

I really don't know to what ex- 
tent this is true. There certainly 
is a disinterest in the football 
team. But, basically, the apathy 
centers around cultural affairs. If 
there is a lecturer on campus 
most students g© becauBe they are 
required to do so, but not of their 
own initiative. If the .students 
were more interested in their 
studies, it might lead to raising 
the intellectual atmosphere. 
BETTE CZAPRAN '58 

I guess there are quite a few 
kids on campus who are not very 
active; and it's always the same 
students who take part in campus 
activities. Students don't feel that 
they're needed so they don't join 
many clubs. The teachers don't 
stimulate the students toward aca- 
demic interest. If the teachers 
sliowed more interest in the stu- 
d<Mits. and presented the sub- 
jcet matt IT better, then pos- 
sil)ly the students would raise 
their intelleetual endeavor. (For 
God's sakes. I don't mean every 
teacher.)

last night, he definitely did not 
have any statement to make. 

"I do not think it was my 
fault," Wixjon claimed, "Jenan- 
yan's bicycle struck the car." 

Before entering the intersec- 
tion, I stopped my car, Wixon 
said, and then proceeded going 
below the speed limit. 

"Jenanyan came down the 
middle of the road, and did not 
slow down," declared Wixon, "I 
pulled over as far as possible to 
miss him." 

Wixon and Putnam belong to 
the Campus Fire Department and 
live in Butterfield Dorm. 

"Speed was not the cause of 
the accident," Chief Alexander 
"Red" Blasko asserted last nierht. 

Although this is not the first 
automobile-bicycle accident on 
campus, the Jenanyan-Wixon col- 
lision is the first one this year, 
Blasko said. 

"The case is still under investi- 
gation," OflRcer Schwartz said 
last night at 11:45, "and a full 
report will be turned in tomorrow 
morning." 

You couldn't call the Clark 
Hill intersection a blind corner, 
Officer Schwartz said, because the 
trees (here are not close enough 
to obstruct the view. 

"But," he stressed, "students 
should use caution when they 
come down the hill." 

According to the campus police, 
there have been approximately !.■> 
accidents on campus this year. 

These include both students and 
transients, and only two people 
have been injured.

UM Goes Into 12 Month Use 
With Su mmer Session^ln June 

Epidemic Simmers mr o* i ^ 

Down On Weekend ^^"^ Studciits Can Graduate 
As Many Go Home ^^^^ — ^ut Without Vacation 



PROF. KAPSTELN 

Prof. Israel J. Kapstein, a 
member of the department of 
English, Brown University, and 
author of several novels and 
short stories, will speak at the 
University of Massachusetts on 
Wednesday evening- in Bowker 
Auditorium at 8 o'clock. The talk 
is entitled "Writing^ - Vision and 
Revision." 

This will be the second in the 
Fall lecture series sponsored by 
the university's department of 
English. 

Pi-of. Kapstein, a well-known 
teacher of creative writing, is the 
author of two novels, "The Song 
the Summer Evening Sings," and 
"Something of a Heio." He has 
also published a number of short 
stories in leading magazines and 
has just finished a textbook en- 
titled "Expository Prose." 

The lecture is designed parti- 
cularly for freshmen and for 
students of creative writing. 



A total of 115 patients was 
reported confined to the various 
university infirmaries over the 
weekend. The total has continued 
to drop from the reported high 
of 160 of last Thursday. 

The figures are mow; men 76 
and women 39. Four infii-mary 
areas are in oi)eration; Union 
BallrooiTis, Infii-mary, Knowlton 
and Thatcher Rec rooms. 

Many people were home for the 
weekend and it is expected that 
some will stay home to i-est and 
recover from the upper respira- 
tory attack. 

There are at this time definite- 
ly no plans to close the univer- 
sity. 

Volunteer help is beioig used to 
help feed and oare for the pa- 
tients. Many faculty wives have 
volunteered to assist the smp'' 
university medical staff thr< u 
this time of crisis. 

Led by Mrs. Mather and her 
two daughters, about 50 mem- 
bers of the faculty are assisting. 
The Scrolls have volunteered to 
assist over the weekend to take 
some of the load from the weai-y 
volunteers. Nui-ses and nurses 
aides from Amherst and sur- 
rounding communities have vo- 
lunteei-ed their services. 

Dean Hopkins has stated that 
his office was manned over the 
weekend to cope with any new 
developments. The Dean of Men's 
Office is also a clearing house for 
any non-professional volunteers. 
Professional volunteers are asked 
to contact the university medical 
staff directly. 



by MARCIA KEITH 

New freshmen, for the first time in the history of the 
university, will be admitted to its summer session. 

Provost McCune gave this announcement last Wednes- 
day night at Lowell State Teachers College. He also ex- 
plained that this stepped-up summer program means thp 
year-round use of the university campus buildings staff 
and faculty. ' 



McCune stated that "it is 
ings which will be used only 

German Twins

Four-year-old Jimmie and Rickie 
Rickard, shown below with Major 
and Mrs. Grant E. Rickard, will 
become citizens of the United 
States at Naturalization Cere- 
monies next week in Northampton. 

Major Rickard is an Air Force 
instructor at the university. The 
Rickards adopted the German- 
born twins three years ago while 
they were on the continent. 



senseless to build more build- 
for eight months . . . We can 

no longer afford the luxury of a 
long summer vacation." 

The summer program, outlined 
by McCune, includes "two five- 
week sessions for teachers, liberal 
arts graduates and incoming 
freshmen. Freshmen,, in certain 
curricula, can complete a college 
education in three calendar 
years." 

This summer program will, 
"theoretically . . . increase the 
number of students here by 25 
percent."

ard with their adopted sons, 
Rickie, and Jimmy, and dog, 
"Bismarck." 



This increase is necessary, Mc- 
Cune noted, "because in ten years, 
there is go):^g to be a need for 
places for up to 50,000 students." 

The university administration 
"wants no colossus, with the 
thousands of students of Mid- 
we.stern institutions, (so) we must 
expand community colleges 
throughout the state to meet the 
rapidly rising number of college- 
age and eligible young people of 
the commonwealth." 

"State-supported institutions 
can provide higher education at 
relatively low cost ... low cost 
education is not low grade educa- 
tion," Provost McCune stated in 
closing. 



THREE SEMESTERS, TWELVE MONTHS OF SCHOOL 
FINALLY GET TRUSTEE APPROVAL, CITES MATHER 



by MARCIA KEITH and JIM GALVIN 



President Mather has stated 
that the new full year attendance 
plap will go into eflfect in mid- 
June of 1968, although the first 
full-size freshmen class will not 
enter until 1959, since it will take 
two years for the program to get 
into full swing. 

iSome freshmen will enter di- 
rectly out of hi«:h school this 
summer, so it will be possible 
for them to graduate in three 
years, the President stated. 

CAMPrs CHEST I 

AH members of the Campus | 
Chest, the captains of each 
dormitory, sorority, and fra- 
ternity will meet Tuesday, Oc- 
tober 29 in the Student Union. 
The captains will organize 
each dorm, sorority, or fra- 
ternity so each will act as a 
team. There will be competi- 
tion on a campus wide basis. 
Two plaques will be gi\'en; 
one to a dormitory, and the 
other to a sorority or frater- 
nity. The goal is one dollar 
per student. 



"Some students will accelerate 
their program, some will not. It 
will be easy to graduate in three 
years from the College of Arts 
and Sciences and from the School 
of Business Administration, not 
■0 easy from School of Engineer- 
ing," he said. 

Three Semesters 

This will be an optional three- 
semester proerram, although, aft- 
er next summer's session it could 
change to a "four quarter" pro- 
gram, which President Mather 
believes would be more "flexible," 
offer a greater variety of cours- 
es. 

No New Clafisrooms 

The president has stated that 
no new classrooms would be need- 
ed, but that a new dormitory 
would be required to house thoee 
students who will have enterod 
the previous June, when the new 
class comes in in September. 

Not A New Idea 

President Mather states, "I 
started thig idea in my preslden 
tiaJ report of last year. This year 



the Board of Trustees accepted 
the plan, and McCune was an- 
nouncing it to the general pub- 
lic." 

Full Schedule In '59 
"In 1959 the university will be 
operated on a full twelve month 
schedule, and at least one enter- 
ing class will start in June of 
that year. This class will be ac- 
cepted only on the baais of at- 
tending the university all sum- 



mer.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY. OCTOBEU 28. 1937 



STRANGERS ON 
LIBRARY LAWN 

Two co-eds are walking from Old Chapel 
to the libe via the main walk. Suddenly in 
the middle of the walk one of our fair friends 
catches something out of the corner of her 
eye, and stops in her tracks. 

"When did they put that there?", she 
asks her friend. 

"What where?" 

"That pole, that light pole in the middle 
of the library lawn!" 

"Why, I never remember seeing it be- 
fore," replied her equally as astonished bud- 
dy. "But it must have been here before. 
Look, the dirt isn't fresh around it." (Aha, 
a reader of Sherlock Holmes!) 

"But it couldn't have been here before — 
or I would have tripped over it long before 
this." 

Our friends stand there for a moment 
scratching their respective heads, then finally 
shrug their shoulders and continue on their 
journey to the libe — convinced that there 
is a mystery afoot in Umieland. 

Perhaps you have witnessed or partici- 
pated in a scene similar to the one above this 
year as you have proceeded across the lawn 
to Goodell Library. You stop suddenly and 
wonder if you are perhaps seeing things, or 
is that really a light pole standing there in 
the middle of the lawn. Finally you decide 
that it is, but you are still puzzled about 
whether it was put there last night, last week 
or a year ago — and what it's doing there in 
the first place. 

Let us satisfy your curiosity. This pole 
and the other two on either side are there to 
light the library, Mem Hall and buildings 
that the old light poles situated in back of 
Goodell were used for. However, the old ones 
were taken down a few months ago to make 
ix)om for the new addition to the libe. You 
can expect to see these mysterious poles in 
their present location for about a year and 
a half — then they will be re-routed more 
conspicuously in back of the new addition. 
(Mystery solved — case closed.)

Satch Answers 

To Mr. D. Hennan, 

For an Uncle Remus fan you 
managed to say very little in an 
extremely superfluous manner. I 
do not intend to do the same. Just 
one question — have you been 
aroused because the article hit so 
close to home? (Don't bother 
embarrassing yourself by answer- 
ing it in print.)

Apology 



To the Editor: 

My sincere apology to the towii 
of Amherst: It was neither my 
intention to defame the town of 
Amiherst, nor to call her as "guil- 
ty as Little Rock." My thanks to 
Mr. Bacon for this correction. 

Using an S.J.H. 'ism - general- 
ity - I should have said "agree- 
ments between private parties, 
that certain areas are to be open 
to members of certain racial 
groups only - which are legal." 

It is, in a sense, the flexibility 
of agreements and laws that en- 
abled Governor Faubus to exe- 
cute his well calculated political 
move. 

Score one SJ.H. 

Yours truly, 
M. Bishop 
P.S.— Once again S.J.H.— have 
you lived at any length in the 
south, or were you just a tourist? 
EDITOR'S NOTE: Score one 
M.B. — SjJi. was a tourist. 



Despite several mix-ups on 
theme, last minute changes be- 
cause of the flu epidemic, and 
Friday's weather, the spirit and 
enthusiasm of both the partici- 
pating and si>onsoring groups, as 
well as Queen Claire Manning, 
was wonderful. 

Wihout this co-operation and 
intei-est from the student body. 
Alumni Homecoming Committee, 
and the administration, the big- 
gest float parade this campus had 
ever seen would have been im- 
possible. 

Thanks again for your sup- 
port

YOU CAN'T WIN... 

by JI.M CALVIN 
Do you get disturbed when the guy upstairs gets 
up from his desk for his eighth break of the past 
hour by compressing himself tightly between desk 
and chair and then unfolding in a whiplash manner, 
sending scraping desk one way and screeching 
desk the other? 

I purposely picked the fourth floor of Mills House 
this semester to get away from this sort of thing 
but I ran into something worse; great bulky ath- 
letes storming about the hall, sweating, grunting, 
butting each other, groaning, and butting again. 
Once in a while, one of them would pull a Bronco 
Nagurski, miss his opponent and butt the wall. The 
other would watch him sink slowly to the floor, and 
then, looking much like a little boy who had dropped 
his ice cream cone, return to his room, and, for a 
while, all would be peaceful and quiet. 

There was one other inconvenience too, which 
I hadn't anticipated. Visitors were too lazy to climb 
the stairs, and lodgers wouldn't condescend to come 
down, so conversations were carried on out the win- 
dow by megaphone. One caller came by promptly 
at ten o'clock every night. "Hey Marty, watcha 
wanna do tonight?" 

"Gee, I dunno. G'eat yet?" 
"No, g'ou?" Etc., etc etc. 

So I moved to the first floor of Brooks where I 
ran into a more unique problem. The guy overhead 
likes to bounce golf balls. I take this opportunity 
to warn him that he may find the golf ball lodged 
firmly in his small intestine with the club following 
a close second. I'd go up to his room and tell him, 
but I haven't found out how big he is yet. 

Anyway, the moral of this story is, stop pester- 
ing the housing office. One room is as good aa 
another. 



Editor's Note: There will be an important 
meeting of the Editorial Staff Wednesday 
evening at 7:30 in the Collegrian ofjice. Car- 
toonists, new editors, feature writers — every- 
one should be there. VERY IMPORTANT!

Football Roundup 



by KEVLV KELLEY 



Bits And Bites-Begged And Borrowed 



This past Saturday may very 
well be remembered as the 
"scare" Saturday of the nineteen 
fifty seven football season. Many 
of the nation's top teams were 
given some verj* panicky mo- 
ments before finally bringing 
home the bacon. 

Top ranked Oklahoma had to 
fight right down to the wire to 
eke out a fourteen to thirteen 
win over a very hard running 
Colorado team. The Sooners, out- 
played for three quarters of the 
game by the Buffaloes, scored the 
deciding seven points with four 
and one half minutes gone in the 
final quarter. 

Notre Dame, the nation's sev- 
enth ranked team, tumed the tide 
on the Pitt Panthers with a spec- 
tacular pass play in the waning 
minutes of the game. The game 
was colored by several outbreaks 
of violence which resulted in 
three players being ejected from 
the contest. Quarterback Bob 
Williams and halfback Dick 
Lynch of ND along with guard 
Dick Scherer of Purdue were ap- 
prehended and ejected for out of 
place fisticuffery. 

"Red" Kowalczyk saved Michi- 
gan from suffering its second 
straight upset defeat when he 
knifed through the middle of the 
Ilinois line and galloped thirty- 
four yards tto paydirt. This tally 
gave the Spartans a nineteen 
to fourteen victory over Illinois, 
and the loss just about killed any 
hopes that Illinois might have had 
about the Rose Bowl. 

Army had to come from be- 
hind in the final stanza to subdue 
a determined Virginia team twen- 
ty to twelve in a game that could 
have become one of the major 
upsets of the season had it kept 
the three-quarter-mark score for 
a final. 

Army's light-weight footballers 
squeezed out a seven to nothing 
win over the Navy "mighty 
mites" much to the pleasure of 
an old Army man. President Ei- 
senhower, who was a spectator at 
the contest. 

NEW ENGLAND 

The Dartmouth College grid- 
iron madiine had a very easy 
time in grinding out a twenty to 
nothing victory over the Crim- 
aon Tide of Harvard in Satur- 
day's traditional clash. Harvard's 
top backs, Chet Boulris and Walt 
Stahura, were not up to par for 
the game, but it is very doubtful 
that their being in good shape 
would have made a great deal of 
^IflTerence in the outcome of the 
game. 

Yankee Conference leader 
Rhlode Island received a twenty- 
one to nothing trouncing at the 
hands of Brown. The Ivy Leag- 
uers were in the driver's seat all 
the way in this one. 

A 4th period stratagem failed 
to materialize and consequently 
Maine was defeated by Bates in 
a thriller; the Bobcats won 7-0. 

Underdog UConn won a close 
one from the Blue Hens of Dela- 
ware thirteen to nine at Ston-^. 
The Huskies' game deciding tally 
was lugged into the end zone by 
Larry Day of Orange. Mass. 

Vermont, the next foe of U- 
Mass, was defeated by Norwich 
nineteen to twoh^p in another 
close one. 

Boston College had its troubles 
in defeating Detmit twenty to 
sixteen; the Titans were knocking 
on the BC goal line as the sec- 
ond hand was making its final 
journey arouml the clock. This 
was the eighth win in a row for 
the Kagles. 

BU pulled one of the major New 
England upAPta off when they de- 
feated the Crusaders of Holy 



Cross thirty-five to twenty-eight. 
Johnny Malo tallied four times as 
the Terriers took their first grid 
victor}' over "The Cross" in thir- 
ty-one years. 

Williams scored thirteen pioints 
in the final stanza to climax an 
ux>hill fight which resulted in a 
draw with Tufts. The Ephs 
were robbed of one down late in 
the game when the oflBcials some- 
how made a four out of a three. 

Les Plumb, Springeld's sharp- 
shooting quarterback, fired three 
six-point sHots as the Maroons 
blanked the Aces twenty to noth- 
ing. Plumb's firing netted 
Springfield College two hundred 
and twelve yards.

Did you know that UMuss 
once had the leading football 
scorer in the nation? His name 
was Lou Bush, and during the 
seasons of nineteen thirty tib 
thirty-three he scored forty-five 
TD's and accounted for two hun- 
dred and seventy six points. He 
led the country as a sophomore 
and as a junior. Injuries hampered 
him in his senuor year. The Mass. 
football record for his three var- 
sity seasons shows nineteen wins 
and one tie in twenty six games. 
Lou was only five foot six inches, 
but led his freshmen basketball 
team to an undefeated season. As 
a sophomore lie was high scorer 
on the Mass. State varsity which 



BRESCIANI 

also went unbeaten. His baseball 
ability led him to a brief career 
with the Boston Braves. UMass 
could certainly use another Lou 
Bush. 

In nineteen fifty two, Noel 
Reebenacker, the present Frosh 
coach, completed one hundred 
and thirty two passes out of twio 
hundred and forty nine attempts. 
Twenty of these completions re- 
sulted in "Redmen" touchdowns. 
This performance was good 
enough to gain "Reeb" the quar- 
terback position on the Little Ail- 
American squad. He ranked 
second in the nation in passing 
and total offense. Noel's favorite 
target was end Tony Chambers 



who received Little All-American 
honors the following season . . . 
"Buzz" Richardson is the leading 
Umie scorer thus far this year. 
He has scored 3 TD's. No "Red- 
man" scored more than 3 time* 
last year. 

Varsity basketball practice has 
started. The opening game is 
on December second. On that date 
the "Redmen" vrill travel to Cam- 
bridge to meet Harvard, a new 
addition to this year's schedule. 
December 27 thi-iough 30th will 
find UMass at Burlington, Ver- 
mont for a Christmas Tournament 
at St. Michael's College . . . For 
the first time in years, each Yan- 
kee Conference team will play 
each other at home.

in the field of Combustion 



Historically, the process of combustion 
has excited man's insatiable hunger for 
knowledge. Since his most primitive at- 
tempts to harness this phenomenon, he 
has been tremendously fascinated by its 
potentials . . . perhaps never more so 
than today with res()ect to the use of 
combustion principles in the modern 
aircraft engine. 

Theorems of many sciences are being 
applied to the design and development 
of high heat release rate devices at 
Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. In the realm 
of aertxlynamics alone, one of many 
airflow problems that pxist in combus- 
tion work is difTuser design for ad- 
vanced powerplants. 

In spite of the apparent simplicity of 
a combustion system, the bringing to- 



gether of fuel and air in proper propor- 
tions, the ignition of the mixture, and 
the rapid mixing of burned and un- 
burned gases involves a most complex 
series of interrelated events occurring 
simultaneously in time and space. 

Fuel injection systems which prop- 
erly atomize and distribute under all 
flight conditions are a continuing chal- 
lenge. In later stages of powerplant de- 
velopment, various combustion prob- 
lems may l)e encountered which can 
be studied and resolved through the 
highly advanced facilities of P & W A's 
Willgoos Turbine Lalwratory. 

Although the combustion engineer 
draws on many fields of science (in- 
cluding thermodynamics, aerodynamics, 
fluid mechanics, heat transfer, applied 



mechanics, metallurgy and chemistry), 
the design of combustion systems has 
not yet been reduced to really scientific 
principles. The highly successful per- 
formance of engines like the J-57, J-75 
and others stands as a tribute to the 
vision, imagination and pioneering ef- 
f<^ of those at Pratt & Whitney Air- 
craft engaged in combustion work. 

While combustion assignments in- 
volve a diversity of engineering talent, 
this field is only one of a broadly diver- 
sified engineering program at Pratt & 
Whitney Aircraft. That program — with 
other far-reaching vities in the fields 
of materials probU ^ ja, mechanical de- 
sign. in.strumentation and aerodynamics 
— spells out a gratifying future for 
many of today's engineering studen-^.

THE PARTY WEEK END: 

ITS CAUSE AND CURE 

Witii the -ca-on of party weekends almcst upon us, 
niv mail uf hue ha- heen flooded with (lueries from yoiuig 
inmates of women's colleges wishing to know how one 
conducts one'- >v\i when one ii;t< invited a young gentle- 
man for a wi'ckend. Tlii- nioitiing, for example, there 
were moi<' than 30.(XM) letteis, each containing a lock of 
hair. 1 uave the hair to a homhsight maker and the 
lanolin to a (li\ >hec|) of my acciuaintanee, and I turned 
instantly to thi' (luestion: How should a young lady de- 
port herseli w hen she has asked a young gentleman to be 
her guest at a paity weekend? 

Well, ni> deal' u^'wU. the first thing to icTneniber is that 
your >oun^ tienilenian is far from home and frightened. 
Put him at iiis ease, "^'ou might, for instance, surj)iise him 
by having his mother sitting in a rocker on the station 
platform when he gets off the train. 

Next, what kind of corsage should yrju send your 
yoimg gentleman? Well, my beloved maidens, orchids are 
always acceptable. 

If you find, my esteemed fillies, that your local florist 
has run out of stock, do not be dismayed. Make a corsage 
out of paper. But pick good, stifT. durable paper — twenty 
dollar bills, for exami)le. 

Remember at all times, my fond wenches, to show 
your young gentleman courtesy and consideration. Open 
doors for him, walk on the traffic side of the path, assist 
him to the pujich bowl, zip his parka, light his Marlboros. 
(What, you ask, if he doesn't smoke Marlboros? Ridicu- 
lous, my precious nymphs! Of course, he smokes 
M:ulboros! Pon't you? Don't 1? Doesn't everybody 
who know.s a hawk from a handsaw?? What other ciga- 
rett<> gives you <ueli a lot to like? Such filter? Such 
tlavor? Such tiip-topbox? No other, my sweet minxes, no 
oth.er. Marlboro stands aliMie, and any man worthy oi you, 
::iy estimable dam.sels. is l)ound to be a Marlboro man.) 

If you will follow the simple instructions stated above, 
my good lasses, \<iu will find that you have turned your 
yoimg gentleman into a fast ;'.nd fervent admirer. There 
is nothing (juite like a party weekend to promote romance.

I am in mind of a party weekend some years ago at Mise 
Pomfritt's Seminary for (Jent^el Chicks in West IJnotype, 
Ohio. Serafina Sigafoos, a sophomore at this inHtiiution, 
majoring in napkin folding, sent an invitation to a young 
man named Fafnir Valve, a junior at the Joyce Kilmer 
School of Forestry, majoring in sap and boles. 

Anyhow, Serafina sent an invitation to Fafnir, and 
he came, and she showered him with kindness and cuff 
links, and then he went away, and Serafina .sat anxiously 
by the mailbox, wondering whether she would ever hear 
from him again. Sure enough, two weeks later she got 
a letter: "Dear Serafina, Can you let me have fifty bucks? 
Yours, Fafnir." 

Whimi)ering with ecstacy, she ran to the bank and 
witlnlrew the money and mailed it to him. From then on, 
she got the same re<iuest every wfek, and as a result, .she 
became very wfll acciuainted with Ralph T. Involute. 
t<»ller of the West l.inoty|M' Hank and Trust (\)., and their 
friendship ri|H>ned into love, and today they iire happily 
married and liv(> in Stamr-n, Oregon, where Ralph is in 
the extrud«Ml mol.'is'^es game and Seratin.'i i^^ a hydrant.

Brimotes Bring 
Dixieland Jazz 
Back To UMies 

by BOB MURPHY 

The Brunotes of Brown, the 

well-known college Dixieland 
group, will blow forth Friday 
night at Bowker Auditorivun 
from 8:15 to 11 pan. 

In answer to the question in 
the minds of many, yes, they are 
the gi'oup who started the 1957 
Winter Carnival off with a roar. 

Since last appearing at the 
University, the group has been 
like wandering nomads. Last 
winter they travelled to nfiany 
schools on the Eastern seaboard. 

During the summer they 
toured the Continent playing in 
Armed Forces U. S. O.'s all over 
Europe. 

Thia concert is the second in 
a series of three sponsored by 
the Union Arts and Music Com- 
mittee. 

The first concert featn^pd "Rd- 
die Madden and his U.N.H. Wild- 
cats. A third concert will take 
place December 13 and will also 
feature a renowned college 
group. 

Due to lack of student inter- 
est, the rally will not be held, 
and the concert will start 
promptly at 8:15.

November 6th and 7th at Arnold 
House. 

770 pledge cards were signed 
during the drive. Four hundred 
and twenty students and faculty 
have been placed on schedule, 
and they will receive their ap- 
pointment cards shortly. The re- 
maining cards will be processed 
upon receipt of parental permis- 
sion which is required for all stu- 
dents under 21. 

The committee which is respon- 
sible for the scheduling of stu- 
dents has the following an- 
nouncement to nmke. 

If you do not receive an ap- 
pointment card, it will be for the 
following reasons: 

1. You are under 18 and your 
donation is appreciated; however, 
at cannot be accepted. 

2. You are under 21 and we 
have not yet received parental 
permission or permission has 
(been denied. 

3. If you have been in the in- 
firmary as a flu patient since Oc- 
tober 23rd, your cart! has been 
pulled automatically from the

Secured By Senior 

David Worthington, '58, is the 
winner of a $100 Scholarship 
awarded for an outstanding sales 
record by the Vita Craft Com- 
pany for whom he worked last 
summer. 

Selling door to door m Port- 
land, Maine, Worthington's items 
included alumninum and stain- 
less steel oookware, Bavarian 
fine China, and stainless Steel 
Flatware. Stainless Steel cook- 
ware was the best selling item. 

In explaining his success, 
Worthington said the best aales 
technique was, ". . . having con- 
fidence in your product and con- 
vincing the potential customer 
that she can't buy a better pro- 
duct at any price. 

With a total sales record of

be from November 12 to 16, and 
the main organization profiting 
from the drive will be the World 
University Service. 

The other organizations which 
benefit from our Campus Chest 
are the Save the Children Fed- 
eration, the Student Organiza- 
tion for Scholarship at the uni- 
versity, Hokkaido university in 
Japan, the United Negro College 
Fund, the United Negro Scholar- 
ships, the Hampshire County 
T.B., the Heart fund, and Jimmy 
fund. 

WUS is an international, in- 
terdenominational, interracial, 
non-political .student relief or- 
ganization which was start •<! 
over thirty years ago. There arc 
five major areas of operation : 
Europe, Africa, the Middle East, 
Southeast Asia, and the Far 
East, supported almost entirely 
by student contributions all over 
the world. The World University 
Service meets five major catego- 
ies of need by supplying: 

1. medical aid and equipment 
housing acconunodations 
for students 
educational equipment 
emerge<ncy aid for individ- 
ual students 
5. displaced persons scholar- 
ships 
More specifically WUS has 
completed a health center in Pat- 
na, India, offering medical fa-

"Mr. Furcolo hasn't the time to 
visit every institution in the com- 
monwealth, so Mrs. Furcolo helps 
him whenever possible. The girls 
on the campus should take note 
of this," continued Provost Mc- 
Cune. 

Mrs. Furcolo is exemplifying 
the role of the wife as an in- 
valuable help to her husband, he 
added. 

Mrs. Furcolo will also be a 
guest of honor for the fall meet-

THE FUTURE... 

What seemed to be a remarkable state- 
ment to this writer appeared in Time last 
week. It went as follows: "The great dream, 
of course, of all space enthusiasts is manned 
exploration (with safe return) of the moon, 
Venus or Mars . . . Exploration of the nearby 
moon would use a good part of the dispos- 
able income of the US or the USSR . . . Col- 
onization of the moon would still be more 
difficult, and colonization of Mars would 
probably absorb the best energies of the hu- 
man race for a generation." 

It seems at last that world leaders found 
something to take their minds off the Cold 
War, which has been raging now for almost 
half a generation and was supposedly lead- 
ing us towards World War III. "For the 
coming generation," Time said, "A bigger 
and more difficult problem is posed : how to 
send earthly mind and matter to another 
universe." This "Race Into Space," as Time 
phrases it, is no doubt a turning point in 
history. Scientific, political, social, and eco- 
nomic thought will be directed towards this 
"Race" for many years to come, and world 
leaders may play down the old struggle of 
democracy and communism in the process of 
solving the mystery of outer space. 

Co-operation among the world leaders in 
science could very possibly lead to full under- 
standing between opposing nations.

Letters . . . 



.,,to the Editor 



No Girls 



To the Editor of the Collegian: 

We, the freshmen men of this 
campus wish to lodge our humble 
complaint. We have been de- 
prived of all fair means of at- 
taining the warm companionship 
afforded by the opposite sex. Up- 
on our arrival, we were labeled 
very conspicuously as outcasts, 
being forced to wear cumber- 
some signs and peculiar head- 
gear. No sooner had we learned 
of the location of the women's 
dorms, when our hunting grounds 
were invaded by upper classmen 
equipped with cars, which have 
profound advantages, even when 
not used for purposes of locomo- 
tion. 

When classes began, we found 
that we were required to climb 
a mountain twice daily in order 
to eat and sleep. This induced 
a run-down appearance which 
proved to be repulsive to the very 
individuals whom we most desired 
to become acquainted. 

Of late we have been confronted 
with the most dastardly and un- 
fair form of competition yet — the 
fraternity party. (A fraternity 
party is a "social" gathering to 
which many upperclassmen and 
all of the campus women who are 
not seriously mal-formed attend.) 
Although we cannot conceive any 
further tactics which, applied, 
could worsen our situation beyond 
its recent condition, we fear that 
they m&y exist. Thus, while we 
urge that we be accepted back in- 
to society of humans, we more 
especially plead that no further 
action be taken to increase our 
misery. 

Respectfully, 

Dan Hemenway '61 



Exile 



To the Editor, 

This is a response to .Tim Gal- 
vin's . . . "You Can't Win." (Col- 
legian, Oct. 28.) Jim is now in 
exile in Brooks Dorm and good 
enough for him. Jim lacks under- 
standing. There is an intelligent 
aggregation residing on the 
fourth floor of Mills whose only 
diversity from full time matricu- 
lation is spent in the participa- 
tion of intramural football. This 



is the same group that lays waste 
to all opponents (save one) on 
the grid-iron two and sometimes 
three times a week. They call 
themselves, the HOVERERS, and 
pride themselves with the literal 
interpretation of terms in this 
age of editorial jargon. 

Thus, when you maliciously re- 
proached them for this butting 
in th*> hair you were guilty of 
complete ignorance as regards to 
this fine display of spirit for a 
worthwhile American game. You 
see, Jim, their literal interpreta- 
tion of intramural justifies their 
practicing between the hall walls, 
(intra: between, mural: wall). 
Give credit then to these "great 
bulky athletes," for their pride 
and convictions of the literal in- 
terpretation and their "esprit de 
corps" in desiring to be in top 
physical shape so they can bring 
home another victory to Mills. 
YOU TOO CAN WIN JIM, if you 
only apply yourself.

THE HOVERERS

Bazaar 



Lamont House 
Smith College 
October 25, 1957 



Dear Editor, 



Every year the Smith College 
students p.irtioipate in an Inter- 
national Students' Day, bringing 
much of the flavor of foreign 
countries to our campus. The for- 
eign students in their native cos- 
tume and girls interested in far- 
away lands will present an all- 
day bazaar on Wednesday, Nov. 
20, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. We 
extend our invitaion to the stu- 
dents and faculty of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts to attend 
this bazaar, and to go with us 
"Around the World at Christ- 
mas." This is an opportunity to 
buy Christmas presents as well 
as help the foreign charities sup- 
ported by the organization. 

We hope that you will come. 

Sincerely, 
Sally Curtis 
Secretary, I.S. Day 



More ..Letters . . . 

Herman vs. Satch 

To B'rer Satch and others . . . 

1 certainly was disappointed, certainly not sur- 
prised, by your ludicrous answer to my letter. 

On the contrary, my criticism was barely con- 
clusive; hardly was it "superfluous." Granted, I 
was stirred by your one forceful line — "aroused be- 
cause the article hit so close to home." 

Tell me, were you striving for profundity by 
making such a concise reply? Frankly, in my esti- 
mation (very unfair, of course) you have said, liter- 
ally, nothing . . . 

It is a disheartening experience to have a sincere 
criticism regarded so childishly; read again my in- 
terpretation — think, and perhaps retort with an in- 
telligent reply. 

My attack is directed not only at you; let any 
who plead your cause retaliate . . . Call it "Intellect- 
ual Sterility," if you think it suitable. Call it what- 
ever you choose; but do choose something . . . gen- 
erate a WORTHWHILE controversy— it would be 
such a pleasant variation.

Rope Pull Responsibility 

To "Jack F. Milroy: disgusted student," 

In reference to your article appearing in last 
week's Collegian, the sophomore class would like to 
defend itself from your unjust accusations concern- 
ing the Frosh-Soph rope pull. 

First of all, the sophomore class as a whole can- 
not be held responsible for the "foolish actions" as 
described in your letter. The class did not organize 
the rope pull, and furthermore, only a minority of 
the sophomores participated in the event. Secondly, 
statements such as "cheating" and "grow up little 
people" are definitely out of place. Whether all 
people know it or not, trucks, trees, and lamp posts 
have been used in the past, and the fact that the 
sophomores are able to use such devices to dominate 
the rope pull, has become more or less a "campus 
tradition." The general opinion of members of the 
sophomore class seems to be that the whole letter 
was totally uncalled for . . . 

The sophomore class was very unhappy that the 
injuries occurred but they definitely should not have 
to assume total blame. 

Arthur H. Mahoney 
President, Class of 1960 



DEAR HENRY... 

by Henry Heartmend 

(For a personal reply include a stamped, self-addressed 
envelope. ) 

DEAR HENRY: I take my girl to all the best 
places, introduce her to the finest people, keep her 
in diamonds and furs but she is in love with another 
g^y who doesn't take her anywhere. Now she likes 
to swim and I swim like a fish. He is as bouyant 
as a rock. Also I am good looking and extremely 
versatile and he is neither. What could be his good 
point ? 

THE FIDDLER 

DEAR FIDDLER: Perhaps humility? Why don't 
you try some. If this doesn't work there are lots of 
other pebbles. 

DEAR HENRY: During the past three years 
I've had five roommates. I just can't seem to get 
along with them. In fact, I don't seem to get 
along well with people in general. How should I 
go about getting help in this matter? 

BEWILDERED GIRL 

DEAR BEWILDERED: Try the Psychology De- 
partment . . . I'm sure they would be happy to see 
you. 

DEAR HENRY: Just recently I had a blond 
.streak put in my hair. Because of it my friends 
snicker, my boy friend refu.ses to take me out. and 
my father threatened to disown me. What shall 
I do? 

JUDY S. 

DEAR JUDY: That's easy — just paint your nose 
green — then no one will notice your hair! 

DEAR HENRY: Would you please mend my 
heart? I asked Stan the Man last Saturday night 
if he would shoot the moon. He refused. Why? 

Ex-WAC 

DEAR Ex-WAC: Maybe he is a lousy shot. 

DEAR HENRY: Just how blind can blind frosh 
dates get? 

1st weekend — She the l.st talked too much. 
2nd weekend — She the 2nd didn't talk enough, 
."^rd weekend — She the .Srd was too much the party 
girl. 

4th weekend — She the 4th was too frigid. 
5th weekend — She the 5th was as dizzy as Sputnik 
must be by now. 

The question i.s if I'm not lucky with the women 
would I be lucky with cards?

Durham. N.H., Oct. 29— It wa.s 
Black Saturday for the Yankee 
Conference football teams as the 
elusive flu bug wiped out ^ames 
for New Hampshire and Massa- 
chusetts, while Maine and Ver- 
mont were upset in their res- 
pective State Series starts 
against Bates and Norwich. 

But the University of Connecti- 
cut's slow starting UConns, now 
rolling in mid-season form, made 
it three straight when they sur- 
prised the University of Delaware 
13-9 before a Dad's Day throng 
estimated at 10,000. 

The Connecticut victory over a 
Delaware which crushed New 
Hampshire 59-6 the week before 
was all the more stunning in 
that Paul Whitley, All-Confe- 
rence full'baok last year, missed 
the game because of injuries, 



while Lenny King, All-Conference 
halfback, went to the infirmary 
with an injury early in the game. 

It sets up the UConn's as 
heavy favorites over winless New 
Hampshire at Storrs, Saturday, 
but Coach Bob Ingalls is re- 
minding his charges this week of 
last year's sdoreless tie with the 
same Wildcats at Durham a year 
ago in a game which almost cost 
them the Bean Pot. 

The Massachusetts • Vermont 
game at Amherst this week 
figures to be much closer, with 
Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen con- 
ceded at least an even chance of 
snapping its current losing 
streak. 

In the meantime, Maine moves 
back into State Series play after 
its 7-0 loss to Bates, by engaging 
a rugged Oolby Club at Water- 
ville. Maine's gamble on a fourth- 
down running play deep in its 
own territory set up the lone 
touchdown last week, and the 
Bears are still smarting under 
their second straight loss to the 
Bobcats from Lewiston. 



Army Leads In Lambert Trophy 

Dartmouth and Amherst came — - 

out of Saturday's mixture of 
madness, mahem and miscalcula- 
tion sporting New England's 
classiest football records. 

The "Big Green", who.se five- 
zero- zero record gives them top 
billing in Ivy League but only 
a poor fifth in the race for the 
Lambert Trophy, continued their 
winning ways by defeating Har- 
vard. 

Army's once beaten Cadets are 
the frontrunners in the race for 
the Lambert Trophy, sign of 
eastern gridiron supremacy. Navy 
and Pitt follow the Black Knights, 
in second and third places res- 
pectively. 

The Lord Jeffs of Amherst 
also carrying a perfect record 
with Dartmouth are the only two 
perfect schools in New England. 
They rate as a good bet to walk 
away with the Little Three title; 
however they were not even 
mentioned in the race for the 
Lambert Cup. 

An interesting sidelight to 
all this business about the Lam- 
bert Cup rad leading Eastern 
football teams is the fact that 
Pitt, with a mediocre three and 
three record, is third in the race 
for the honors. 

It just shows bo go you that it 
is not how many games a team 
loses but whom they lose them to 
that counts. Numbered among the 
conqueror's of Pitt are Notre 
Dame and Army. Bud Wilkinson's 
Oklahoma Sooners still lead the 
national parade of teams with un- 
scathed records. Also without a 
lo.ss or a tie among the national 
leaders are Iowa, Texas, A&M, 
Auburn, and Notre Dame. 



An injury to a Brandeis player in the Brandeis-NU 
game last Saturday resulted in the severing of all athletic FOOTBALLERS 

relations between Brandeis and Northeastern. 

Brandeis end, Mike Long, had 
two teeth knocked out and re- 
ceived mouth cuts requiring 42 
stitches, after catching a touch- 
down pass. Brandeis officials 
hinted that NU was guilty of a 
deliberate foul, and after viewing 
movies on the game, made a de- 
finite statement to that effect. 

The accusation was denied by 
Northeastern coach, Joe Zabilski, 
who added that Bob Lyons, the 
player accused by Brandeis, had 
been using a legal shoulder block 
with anris extended when the in- 
jury occurred. 

Both thin Saturday's game and 
any other scheduled contest are 
included in the breaking of re- 
lationships, according to Herbert 
W. Gallagher, NU director of ath- 
letics, who stated that the break 
was due to the impossibility of 
carrying on an "amicable inter- 
collegiate program" with Bran- 
deis. 

The game, won by Brandeis, 
14-0, was a last-minute arrange- 
ment after both teams had con- 
tests with other schools cancelled 
because of the flu. Northeastern

Crosbv To Buy 

m m 

Tiger Stock 

The Associated Press said 
IVBonday that singer Bing Crosby, 
a bridegroom of less than a week, 
is planning to buy a substantial 
share of the Detroit Tigers base- 
ball team. 

The AP received the informa- 
tion from Los Angeles via a news 
report in the Detroit News. 

The News said Crosby's share 
is expected to cost $300,000 flo 
$400,000. When the American 
League club changed hands last 
year the sale price was h^/i mil- 
lion dollars. Estimates of its 
1957 profits run as high as 
$500,000. It finished fourth. 

The 53-year-old crooner is 
selling his stock in the Pittsburgh 
Pirates of the National League, 
according to the News, because 
it was rules by baseball com- 
missioner Ford Frick that Crosby 
could not hold substantial inte- 
rests in both major league teams. 

Crosiby, several years a Pi- 
rate stockholder, once owned 16 
per cent of the Pittsburgh club. 



EN MASSE 
GREET COACH 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke watch- 
ed his complete football squad 
turn out for practice yesterday 
afternoon. All of fie flu cases 
have been restored to active duty 
in preparation for the game at 
Alumni Field this Saturday 
against Vermont. 

"They'll be ready both oflFen- 
sively and defensively for the 
Vermont game," commented 
O'Rourke. 

At present, plans call for the 
tentative start right halfback to 
be fleet-footed Billy Reynolds. 

Five seniors will play their 
final home game against Vermont. 
They are: Bob DeValle, Win Mac- 
Donald, John O'Keefe, John Enos 
and John Tero. 

The Redmen will field their 
most aggressive team of the 
season against the Catamounts. 

This coming game comes close 
to being their best chance of the 
remaining season for UMass to 
break into the winning column. 




NO SORRIER WARRIOR exists than the one without 
Luckies. What's he missing? A smoke that's as light as 
they come! End to end, a Lucky is made of superbly light 
tobacco— golden rich, wonderfully good-tasting tobacco 
that's toasted to taste even better. That's a lot to miss out 
on— no wonder our chief has grief! Up North, you'd call 
him a Blue Sioux; back East, a Bleak Creek. But out in 
the land of the pueblo, he's just a mighty Mopey Hopi. 
(Smoke signal to you: Light up a Lucky. You'll agree a 
light smoke's the right smoke for you!)

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGUN, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER J». 1957 



Love Has 
Its Price 

Highlighting last night's New- 
aoQAn dub meeting was a talk 
on "Courtship and Marriage" by 
Father John Knott, Director of 
the Cana Conference work in the 
Archdiocese of Hartford. 

Father Knott, former U. S. 
Naval chaplain, counsels young 
married and engaged couples on 
marriage, and has written arti- 
cles on the subject for several 
Catholic periodicals. 

In his talk, Father Knott 
stressed that understanding of 
one's self and one's mate is a 
prime requisite in marriage. 

The important thing in choos- 
ing a mate, stated Father Knott, 
is to "marry someone who is 
willing to love and to pay the 
price of love," which is to love 
according to the other person's 
need.

Debating Club 
Declares War 

Brandishing their verbal 
swords in preparation for this 
year's fierce battles are the mem- 
bers of the varsity Debating 
team, Lois Lestan, Fraaicine 
O'Donnell, Robert Zilis, and 
Joseph McNiel. 

The National topic which they 
will argue is: resolved that the 
requirement of membership in a 
labor organization as a condition 
of employment is illegal. 

Highlighting the first semes- 
ter's activities will be the Ver- 
mont Tournament on Nov. 23, 
which will be entered by all the 
top schools in New England. Al- 
so in the spotlight will be the 
Tufts' tournament, Dec. 6 and 7, 
where the UMass team will come 
to grips with such teams as Har- 
vard, Dartmouth and Brandeis. 

The members of the Debating 
Society and Mrs. Jay Saveried, 
the detote coach, ai-e preparing 
their strategy now, and, inciden- 
tally, are anticipating a winning 
year even though the opposing 
teams say, "That's debatable."

Frosh Bid For 
Birth Of Panel 

A freshman discussion panel, 
modeled on TV's "Meet the 
Press," is being considered to 
keep students informed on cam- 
pus and local problems. 

According to originators Paul 
Butler, '61, and Dennis Twohig, 
'61, the program would center 
around a guest, who would ans- 
wer questions presented by stu- 
dents. It is hoped that the guest 
list would include prominent peo- 
ple from both on and off campus. 

Sponsored by the freshman 
class, the panel woxild be made 
up of two permanent faculty 
moderators, two permanent 
freshman panel members, and a 
member chosen at large from 
the student body. WMUA aid for 
the panel is being investigated. 

A meeting concerning the for- 
mation of such a group is being 
held at 6:30 Friday night in the 
Middlesex Room at the SU. All 
interested freshmen are invited 
to attend.

Hort. Show Transforms Cage 
Into Natural Wonderland 



Prof. Edward Emerson 
Of Engineering Dept. 
Heart Attack Victim 



"Mums Away'' 
Is Main Theme 

by JUDY MORRIS 

The cage became "nature's half 
acre" at 4 p.m. today, as the 
45th annual Horticulture Show 
opened. 

Carrying through the theme of 
"Mum's the Word", the main ex- 
ihibit shows off 15 varieties of 
university grown chrysanthe- 
mums, arrayed centrally around 
a fountain and a house with a 
roof garden. Thomas Kane, a 
^aduate student and designer 
of the display, used great skill 
in presenting mums in as many 
different ways as is possible. 

The remainder of the show in- 
cludes both student and commer- 
cial projects. 

Students from t«n departments 
of the College of Agriculture and 
Stockbridge, in one of the most 
extensive laboratory exercises on 
campus, have set up representa- 
tive "ten by ten" displays. The 
state Department of Agriculture 
has awarded $200 in prizes and 
the Massachusetts Nurserymen's 
Association has awarded one 
prize of $50 to various student 
comipetitors.

The Poll 
Bearer 

by JOE TABAK 

"Due to lack of student inter- 
est, the rally (for the football 
team) will not be held (Friday 
nijrht)." Collef/ian, Oct. 30. 

Question: Do you think that 
there should be a rally? Are the 
students uninterested? 

MARCIA BEARDSELL '59 

Frankly, it doesn't make any 
difference to me because I would- 
n't go anyway. If it weren't for 
the fact that Mr. Musgrave is 
"suggesting" that I go to the 
Press Club Meeting, then I 
wouldn't even be here Friday 
night anyway. The students can 
hold their own rally if they want 
to, anyway. 

CAROLYN BAKER '58 

Yes, they shouldn't have a w^- 
ly. Why should they have a rally? 
No team, no spirit. I didn't know 
they were healthy enough to play 
football. Maybe if we didn't 
play Saturday, then we'd stay 
healthy. A few freshmen might 
go to the rally, but there wouldn't 
be much of a turnout. It wouldn't 
do much good anyway. 

JOAN SIEGMUND '58 

I think it's very true. What 

was thp rally suppog<vl to be for?

Peter Larson, a senior floricul- 
ture major and cochainnan with 
Walter Ayers, a Stockbridge 
landscape operations major, es- 
timated that 20,000 persons will 
attend the show. 

Because it is financed entirely 
by the sale of corsages and food, 
no admission charge is made for 
this extravaganza, which re- 
quired appix)xiniately 2,500 man 
hours of labor to produce. 

Apart from the actual dis- 
plays, a main feature of the show 
will be the naming of Clark L. 



Thayer, the head of our floricul- 
ture department for 38 years, as 
"Horticulturist of the Year". 
Charles McNamara, state com- 
missioner of agriculture, will 
make the presentation at 8:00 
p.m. tonight. After seeing the 
floriculture department grow 
from a one-man unit to a nine 
man department with a complete 
pi-ogram of teaching, research 
and extension both on campus 

and at the Waltham Field SU- 

tion, he retired in August. 



Newsman Dinsmore 
Visits Press Club 

The editor of the first world

Student Union. 

Mr. Dinsmore, editor of the 
New York Times interaational 
edition, will speak before the 
Press Club in a meeting that is 
open to the public. 

He has been in charge of the 
international edition since its es- 
tablishment. The paper now has 
a regular circulation in more than 
fifty nations. 

Before going to the internat- 
ional edition Mr. Dinsmore had 
been a member of the New York 
Times for over thirty years. 

The Press Club is set up 
for all those who are interested 
in the different aspects of news- 
paper work.

UMass Students 
Volunteer For Work 
With Mentally 111 

by LINDA DELVENTAL 

UMass student volunteers — 
seventy-two in all — will begin a 
program of work with mentally 
ill patient.s at Loo<ls Veterans Ad- 
ministration Hospital next week. 

The campus gi*oup finished the 
volunteer training program at 
Leeds in Northampton Wednes- 
day night. At this final session 
special attention was given to the 
explanation of the types and 
scope of the care given patients. 

The role of volunteers was de- 
scribed as doing for the patient 
what the busy permanent staff 
cannot do. That is, through so- 
cial contact with him, helping him 
to work bock to a reality sit- 
uation. Volunteers are a link 
with the outside world and soon 
become a part of the patient's en- 
vironment. 

The volunteer group here at 
the University is sponsored by 
the Campus Religious Council 
with the American Red Cross 
and includes students who were 
initiated last spring as well as 
those who completed orientation 
requirements this week. 

Judith Abrams is Chairman of 
the steering committee for this 
project and Rev. Albert Seely is 
advisor. 

Volunteers are: Elaine Mor«e, 
Jean Richardson, Dave Shej^rd-

Iledmen Drill For Last Home Game 



With the last home appearance 
of the UMass football team loom- 
ing on the horizon, Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke is breathing ea.sy for 
the first time in two weeks. The 
Redmen are back to almost full 
strength after being laid low by 
a siege of the flu. 

It also looks like the Insl time 
the University of Mass. will be 
playing the I'niversity of Vrr- 
mont for at least several y< ars 
as the Catamount.'! hnvc l»oon 
dropped fromi the 19.'>8 Rodmfn 
schedule. The Redmen hold a 
commanding nmrjrin over Ver- 
mont in thr that <lates 
l.a.k U. 1890. IM.,>,-, li, 11 
whilf Vermont has pit k. .i .ji t'l 
wins with the opponents fsplit- 
ting two (if thi' n« urevious meet- 
ings. 

Dad's Day will highlight the 



game as the fathers of the Red- 
men varsity performers will be 
seated on a special bench on the 
50 yard line to watch their off- 
spring perform. Before the game, 
the fathers will enjoy a training 
table repast with the players, 
while the mothers will have a 
special luncheon at the l^niversity 
commons. 

Unlike the last year when no 
less than five of the players en- 
joyed the Houbi<> st.Ttiis of being 
fathern themselves, di-Siabled on<\ 
Bob Ferriani is the only remain- 
ing Dad on the team. He suffered 
a head injury early this season 
an<l uill pi«4wibly see little if any 
action .Saturday. 

Both teams will be looking for 
their firwf conference win of the 
seaMMi. Vermont has picked up a 
lonelv win over Union while the 



Redmen are still winless in four 
games on their overall records. 
The Kedmen have picked up four 
wins from the Catamounts in 
their last five meetings with Ver- 
mont getting their only win by a 
two point margin in 19.')4. 

The game should prove a real 
test for although the Redmen look 
stronger than Vermont it remains 
to he seen just how much the flu 
bug has affected the players' en- 
durance. 

.'nix seniors will play their final 
home game Saturday at 1 :30 as 
the Kedmen take the field against 
Vermont.

The Last Hurrah 
DOC '58 

The game tomorrow will be a crucial one. The 
rally which was scheduled for tonight was can- 
celled for various legitimate reasons— one being 
the fact that half the cheerleaders are down with 
the flu. In the midst of this passive picture the 
team fielded will be composed of five members of 
the class of '58 who will again be there when and 
where they are needed. One of the colorful high- 
lights of the game is that a member of the class of 
»58 nicknamed "Harlan," who has patiently sat on 
the bench and waited to be called, has been promised 
a berth as a starter. He will field his position m 
the prominent role of co-captain of the team. Of 
course we are talking about "Doc" Enos, a relatively 
small football player, but small in size only. His 
accomplishments range from the gridiron to mem- 
bership in Phi Kappa Phi. Doc also finds time to 
work at the News Office and to tutor freshmen— a 
behemoth in terms of scholastic accomplishments. 

We know that his fellow members of the class of 
'68 Ronald Blume, Robert Devalle, "Buz" Richard- 
son, and Co-Captain John O'Keefe will provide stim- 
ulating opposition for the "Catamounts." 

The Saturday afternoon "Dads' Weekend" foot- 
ball game will be the last home game played here 
this fall. 

A poor season has challenged everyone to re-eval- 
uate his feelings and beliefs in the sport called 
football and the part it will play at this umversity. 

The result of our losses has opened a new vista 
for an understanding attitude of the students. 

The coach has earned a year of reprieve because 
it is felt that a total turnout of thirty-one men for 
the team is a ridiculous figure for a college of this 
size The students have supported the team in a 
manner which is creditable. Finally, the team itself 
has distinguished itself as one with "guts" but no 
depth. 

Since it is felt that the abolition of sports would 
perhaps lead to an unrealistic high tension "ivory 
tower" atmosphere, the new position of athletics at 
the university has been re-defined to provide for a 
co^existent situation. The position is a solid one, 
and promises of better winnings are evident on the 
horizon. 

Finally we know that the class of '58 will be 
there to support you. 



GOOD LUCK ...

Smells Great— Who Is It? 



The above cartoon copped second prize in the recent cartoon contest 
sponsored by the Student Union. "Smells good — who is it?" was submitted by 
Nancy Wells, Hamlin House. 



WHAT NEXT, BX? 

The several thousand guests at the Homecoming football game 
were treated to an unexpected surprise when a low flying aircraft 
showered the field with hundreds of leaflets welcoming them to the 
university and expressing fond hopes for a Redman victory. Al- 
though the bomber's aim was not characterized by the greatest of 
accuracy, enough of the leaflets did hit the stands and playing field 
for the players and spectators alike to get a glimpse of the message. 

The only puzzling thing about the leaflets was that they were 
not dropped by APO, Adelphia, The Maroon Key, or some such spirit 
building group, but by a mysterious organization which calls itself 
"Beta Chi." 

This was not the first manifestation of this organization's activ- 
ities. They dropped leaflets at last year's homecoming game, sent 
Christmas cards to many people and residences on campus last year, 
and placed a large "Beta Chi" on the bank between Lewis and Leach 
last spring. Unfortunately, this sign was interpreted as a campaign 
stunt for Dante Betachi who was running for the Student Senate. 

A little scouting around campus in search of information on this 
elusive Beta Chi has unearthed some very interesting rumors and/or 
facts about their organization. 

To the question "What is Beta Chi?", various answers have been 
suggested. The most prevalent opinion is that BX is a secret veteran's 
organization dedicated to the proposition that all students should 
occasionally "goof off." Additional rumors credit the organization 
with wild parties in private rooms at local malt drink dispensaries, 
agitation among the legislators in Boston as the unofficial lobbyists 
for the student body, and various other activities, both reasonable and 
ridiculous. 

Several questions have been posed by members of the student 
body in connection with this secret organization. The most obvious 
question is, "Why are they secret?" Are they engaged in nefarious 
activities which would be frowned upon by the administration? Or 
are they just having a little fun at the expense of the rest of the 
campus ? 

Some people think they are an outgrowth of the vets who organ- 
ized the petition when the checks were delayed last year. Another stu- 
dent asked if membership was limited to students. He seemed to 
think that there was a possibility that there might be some members 
of the faculty who had served in the Korean "Police Action." 

Another interesting point is that their activities are usually high- 
lighted by a poem of questionable literary merit, but direct and to 
the point. Are they led by a fru.strate«l Engli.sh major? 

Well . . . How about it Beta Chi ? Just how long do you intend 
to keep the campus guessing? When will you come out in the open 
and let us know who you are? Why are you hiding? Surely you 
can't be afraid of anyone here on campus. 

If you would like to present your attitude without revealing the 
secrecy of your membership, the Collcfjinn will bo glad to print a 
letter from you in next Friday's issue even if you don't sign it, as 
long as you don't violate our usual standards in regard to libel and 
goofi t;isti\ 

Your move, Beta Chi.

the flu patit'iits. The nurHes, faculty iiH'ml)«-rs ani their wives, stu-

Thank you.

More Thanks 

Letter to the Editor: 

"Up to the ears and sweat it out." 

To some of our fellow students this cry will 
mean little or nothing, but to many of the males who 
enjoyed a visit to the Student Union (FLU U.) 
these words will strike a memory bell in the grey 
matter. It happened something like this. 

Upon entering the Student Union, I was immedi- 
ately greeted by many of my buddies who either 
clapped, said, "You'll be sorry!" or lay there with 
feeble grins on their faces. A nurse quickly came 
to my rescue with a curt, "Where's your credentials 
(an admittance slip from the infirmary) ?" Having 
taken care of the red tape, I was led to a bed and 
given a cle'in pair of pajamas — what a pair, three 
of me could have fit inside easily. And so from 
student to sickbay in one easy hour. Requirements 
of such a transition were: Fever, a queer foreign 
organism, and a desire to get out of classes— or 
better yet, hour exams — for a few days. 

Looking back in retrospect there are a few nice 
things I wish to say, and there are also a few events 
that I was too ill to get a clear picture of. Perhaps 
one of the readers can help me. 

Going to the nice things, I'd like to say that with 
the exception of being awakened every time I got 
to sleep it seems — to stare into a mercury tube or 
to swallow a colored pill — the service was swell. The 
chow was good and the nurses who served it (it 
seems there were male nurses too) for the most 
part were friendly and helpful. The music was . . . 
well, anyway, we know "My Fair Lady" by heart 
and We almost broke our fever with Little Richard's 
crazy beat. By the way, who sent in that request 
to a certain "egghead?" 

There are also a few things that now as I look 
back puzzle me. The guys were always calling some- 
one "President," "Sec. of the Interibr," or "Record 
Holder" (it seems that he stayed here for quite a 
while or something). Was vas das (sick) ? 

Also, some guy kept coughing and asking for 
cough syrup, but he was always refused (something 
special about <?ough medicine?). They only ga"c us 
enough to wet our whist ... I mean throat. 

Yes, also there was one afternoon when no one 
could talk because of "frozen tongues?". Of course! 
That's the day we had ice cream for dessert too. It's 
all as clear as ice now. 

Another thing, how come they made some guys' 
'beds and not some other guy's ? It seems to have 
meant something (the parole board met every night 
and decided who was to be pardoned). And lastly, 
who was that beautiful redheaded nurse, you know, 
the one who wasn't married? 

Our many and sincere thanks go out to all the 
guys, men and women, professors, nurses, deans and 
senators, whto contributed bheir time and efforts in 
a flu-filled room to make our stay a little easier. 

And to those of you still in the Flu U., you lucky 
resting people, we have a word of advice from our 
campus doctor, "Up to the ears and sweat it out." 

Frederick J. Mitchell '59.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1. 1957 



INTRAMURALS 

At the IFC meeting Wednes- 
day night, a vote was taken and 
it was agreed to finance an all- 
star team trip to U.N.H. in case 
it was necessary to play the in- 
tramural bowl game as an all- 
■star game. 

Although it would be more de- 
sirable to have the champion here 
play the New Hampshire cham- 
pion, nine man football is played 
there and a 20 man squad is a 
necessity. Pending a reply from 
U.N.H. with their views on the 
subject and a copy of their rules, 
the entire issue of whether a 
fraternity all-star team or the 
U'Mass champions will make the 
trip to the game is left hanging 
in the air. 

SPE continues to romp through 
the oppositfon although they en- 
countered one of their toughest 
rivals from an unexpected quarter 
when AEPi almost overcame 
them. The Sig Eppers finally 
managed to squeak out a slim 
6-0 win. 

Theta Chi, seemingly getting 
stronger with each succeeding 
game, put some grease on the 
skids for the rapidly slipping Phi 
Sig team and knocked them off, 
19-0, to nudge PSK down into 
fourth place. SAE, by virtue of a 
19-0 win over TKE has moved 
into the tfcird ranking spot. 

FROSH BASKETBALL 
Chet Gladchuck sounded the 
call for freshmen hoopnters 
today. An initial meeting will 
be held Monday, November 4, 
in room ten of the Curry

The varsity grapplers will 
also hold th^ir ftrnt meeting 
next week. Their meeting will 
be held Tuesday. Norember 
5, in room ten of the Curry 
Hicks building. Once again, 
all those interested are re* 
quested to attend.

The UMass Women's Field 
Hockey team took part in an All- 
New England Field Hockey Play 
Day at Wellesley College last 
Saturday. 

Th^- team played the Univer- 
sity of New Hampshire in their 
first round, tying them 0-0. In 
the second round for UMass, the 
girls proved themselves hy beat- 
ing Salem Teachers' College 1-0. 
However, in the final round 
they were eliminated from the 
play-offs by Bradford Junior Col- 
lege who beat them 1-0. 

The Play Day is an elimination 
contest in which teams are paired 
off, winners finally being brought 
down to two teams, who play each 
other for the title of champions 
of the day. 

Gretchen Englehardt, a soph^o- 
more, received honorable mention 
for the All Star New England 
College Team. 

On Tuesday the UMass team 
played Mt. Holyoke at Holyoke, 
losing 4-0. 

The girls were supposed to 
have gone to UConn on Wednes- 
day, but the flu hit the hockey 
team, forcing that game to be 
canceled.

(Continued from page 1) 
put that article in the paper then 
noixxly would have known. 
(Cough, cough, I think I'm get- 
ting the flu.) There really hasn't 
been enough publicity to arouse 
student interest. Who is in charge 
or organizing rallies? 

CHARLIE CARLSON '58 

I don't think they should have 
tho rally for three resasons. First, 
the flu situation. Second, if only 
a few showed up, it would be 
very demoralizing for the team. 
Third, because the team hasn't 
won a game, not many students 
would be apt to show up. I 
don't think the students' apathy 
is caused by any lack of spirit 
in the team. 

CARL CLAPP '59 

If they're going to cut out the 
rally, they might as well cut out 
the football team. The primary 
purpose for a rally is to sup- 
port your football team. If the 
students don't have enough in- 
terest in the team, why bother.

Satui-day afternoon Coach Bill

travel to Burlington Vermont 
where they will take part in the 
tenth annual Yankee Conference 
Cross Country Meet. The harriers 
will be out to unseat defending 
champion UConn. In order to do 
this they will have to outdistance 
New England Champs Maine, 
who are the favorites in the meet. 

This Saturday afternoon will 
also witness the Canteen Kids 
taking another shot at their 
second win. Coach Reebenacker's 
Freshmen football squad, which 
was defeated by BU., in the last 
outing, looks like a good bet to 
hit the target.

Redmen Stop Vetmont 
14-13 For First Win 



Richardson And 
Walls Scorers 

by TED RAYMOND 

With an assist from the weath- 
er and a last minute game saving 
interception by driving fullback 
Buzz Richardson, the Redmen fi- 
nally buried the hatchet— right in 
the carcass of the University of 
Vermont Catamount — to gain 
their first win of the season by 
the slimmest of margins, 14-13, 
before a small crowd of 2700 fans 
at Alumni Field Saturday. 

It was Dan's Day at UMass, 
and Senior quarterbacV: Ron 
Blume and Richardson teamed 
up to give the Dads something 
to cheer about as Blume set up 
both TD's arni Buzz went over 
for both scores. The margin of 
victrvry was provided by GeiTy 
Walls, however, as he limbered 
up his toe to boot both extra 
points and clinch the initial win 
of the 1957 campaign. 

The entire game was played 
in an on-again off-again rain 
that assumed torrential propor- 
tions in the second half, leaving 
the 6eld in sloppy condition, suit- 
ed only to the type of running 
displayed by Richardson. Buzz 
runs as straight as an arrow, 

reminiscent of the Bronko Na- 
gurski style, although someone 
remarked after the game that 
he was cutting much better as 
it looked as though he was at 





The U of M scoring punch; pictured above are Buzzy Richardson 
(left) and Jerry Walls (right). Richardson tallied twice for the 
Redmen while Walls booted the two points after. It was the first 
win for UMass and only the second time this season that the tribe 
has been able to hit double figures. 



least six or seven inches off line 
when he broke into the secondary 
once. 

The assist from the weather 
was a twofold blessing; while 
enabling Richardson to barrel 
along like a Sherman tank it 
also caused the muddy ball to 
get away from the Verm.ont back- 
field men no less than seven 
times during the course of the 
game. The Key Catamount fum- 
ble came after their second TD 
when quarterback Dick White, 
who was holding for Tom Tier- 
ney's PAT try, hobbled the pig- 
skin and the UMass line came 
swarming in to preserve their 
single point lead. 

The Redmen drew first blood 
in the contest midway through

)us Chest Becoming Tradition 
On Campus; Drive Starts Next Week 



Fast becoming an old tradi- 
tion on campus, the Campus 
Chest has chosen for its slogan 
this year, "A Buck in Time Aids 
Nine". The drive is to take place 
from Nov. 12 to 16, and the cap- 
tains are busy in every dorm, 
sorority and fraternity organiz- 
ing for the drive. 

You the student may ask, 
"What will my money be used 
for?" This year the Campus 
Chest is supporting many organ- 
izations. Among them are the 
Jimmy Fund, the Heart Fund 
and the Hampshire County Tu- 
berculosis Fund. 

"Just what are the functions 
of these organizations and what 
will my money be used for?" The 
Jdmmy Fund is an agency of the 
Children's Chancer Research 



Foundation, the only Fomida- 
tion in the world devoted to the 
problems and research of cancer 
in children. The Jimmy Fund 
fosters research and makes ]>ossi-

able cancer. 

The American Heart associa- 
tion is the only health agency 
in the U.S. devoting all its en- 
ergies to the reduction of prema- 
ture death and disabilities caused 
by the many forms of heart and

is an experienced dog passenger 
on numerous rocket and balloon 
flights. 

The Sputnik weighs 1100 
pounds, and is travelling at a 
speed of 18,000 miles per hour. 

Washington took the story 
lightly and did not seem disturbed 
by Russia's latest step toward su- 
premacy in the satellite race. 

Kudryavka ofFei-ed no resis- 
tance. Radio Moscow reported, 
when the laboratoiy workers 
dressed her in a special suit and 
attached the tiny instruments 
which will record her breathing, 
her blood pressure and heart- 
beats during the flight. 

Animal flights are just a be- 
ginning to a new travel era, Rus- 
sian scientists claim. 

As of late last night, Kudryav- 
ka was reported to be in good 
condition with a normal heart- 
beat and respiration. 

Russia plans to release Kudry- 
avka from Sputnik the 2nd via 
a rocket which will propel her 
and the air-tight compartment 
she is inside, into space. Once 
she reaches the earth's atmos- 
phere, a parachute will automat- 
ically open, and she should reach 
the ground safely, Russia claims.

MRS. FURCOLO, 
PRESIDENT AT 
CORNERSTONE 

"The governor and myself are 
dedicated to the expansion and 
improvement of educational facil- 
ities in our commonwealth," said 
Mrs. Foster Furcolo at the cor- 
nerstone laying of the Women's 
Physical Education building now 
under construction. 

Miss Ruth Totman, head of the 
woman's physical educational de- 
partment, praised the Woman's 
Advisory Board for their work 
in making the building a reality. 

The copper box containing pic- 
tures, the WAA program, and 
two Collegiann was placed in the 
time capsule of the cornerstone by 
the contractor. It was covered 
with mortar by Mrs. Furcolo, Miss 
Totman, Arthur Shaw, architect, 
Joseph Walsh, contractor, Sylvia 
Finos '59, president of WAA, and 
finally. President Mather. 

The building, costing more than 
one and a half million dollars, will 
include a two-court gymnasium, 
a swimming pool, an indoor arch- 
ery range, and bowling alleys. 
On completion it will permit a 
major course of study in woman's 
physical education.

The 4r)th annual Horticultural 
Show ended Sunday evening with 
a total attendance of 14,943. The 
publicity chairman of the show, 
George Goddaid, stated that this 
drop in number fi-om last year 
was due to the rain which 
"played havoc with the attend- 
ance." 

The entries of this year's Hort 
Show were judged by two inde- 
j)fndent groups, one from the 
Massachusetts Department of 
Agricultuie and the other from 
the Massachusetts Association of 
Nurserymen. 

The Department of Agricul- 
ture awarded its prizes on the 
basis of five categories; Modern, 
p'ormal. Informal, Naturali.stic 
and Educational. The prizes to- 
taled $200. 

There were no first prizes giv- 
en to two of these classes. Mod-

Ya-Hoo Criticism... 

Perhaps before you read this editorial 
you should let your eyes roam to the other 
side of the page and read Mr. Kominski's 
column, "Campus Comment" (if you haven't 
done so already) — for it is primarily in 
answer to Kominski that this editorial is 
written. 

With the first few paragraphs of "Cam- 
pus Comment," we agree wholeheartedly. 
No one could more staunchly defend free- 
dom of the press than a campus newspaper 
(or for that matter, any newspaper). The 
prospect of having a censorship board to 
check material before it is published is ana- 
thema to this freedom that we so strongly 
believe in and uphold. 

But with the remainder of Kominski's 
sentiments we disagree. 

Kominski thought the latest issue of Ya- 
Hoo was good. We thought it was pretty 
bad. Although one expects a certain amount 
of creative "spice" in a college humor mag- 
azine, one should not have to expect the 
steady diet of questionable material that 
Ya-Hoo exhibited in its latest issue. 

Our mothers and fathers certainly didn't 
come over on the Mayflower, and we are sure 
most of them appreciate real humor and cre- 
ativity — two attributes that material in a 
college humor magazine should posess. H is 
our contention that a humor magazine is not 
what it should be if we are reluctant to bring 
it to our homes. 

Some of the material in Ya-Hoo was 
funny, creative, and in good taste, but too 
much of it was not. This is both unfortunate 
and unnecessary. 

We will defend freedom of the press— 
(always)— but bad taste is never defensible.

Cartoon Contest 



Personification Of Apathy 

A comely lass 

From Anjrtown, Mass., 

Who prides herself, I acknowledge, 

On being a woman in college, 

Prefers to ignore 

The fate of a score 

Of young men dedicated to a game 

That so far has brought them little fame. 

It's because of a pretense 

That it makes no difference 

Whether Blume, O'Keefe and DeValle 

Have the support of a rally 

Or whether the school that she graces, 

Among US colleges, even places. 

This comely lass, 

Is only one of a class 

But how well she speaks the curse 

That so many of us mutely rehearse: 

The passive cry of apathy, 

The talent to act indifferently.

Women! 

Query • . . 

To the editor: 

In response to Mr, Hemenway's 
letter, I think the poor boy has 
the same pi-oblems as many of 
his masculine counterparts. If Mr. 
Hemenway eared to open his 
eyes and see all the stag women 
around here on weekends, he'd 
come to realize that many of 
them would like dates, but where 
the heck are the men? It seems 
that there ia no truly acceptable 
way for a guy to meet a girl 
around here. So how 'bout it 
girls, let's have some suggestions 
on how we can get to meet you 
before Mr. Hemenway and his 
male sympathizers die of acute 
frustration.

. . .Suggestions 

To the editor: 

In re9ponse to Mr. Hemenway's 
letter of the 30th, we, as typical 
freshman girls, wish to make 
three comments: 

(L) Our classes here at the 
university are co-educational, al- 
though from the segregated con- 
versations this is usually not ap- 
parent. What better way to meet 
freshman girls than by talking 
to them before or after class? 
Try it. You might be surprised. 

(2.) You would be astonished 
at the number of fre.<?hman girls 
who don't attend fraternity par- 
ties on Saturday nights. (Some 
freshman girls have even attend- 
ed these fabulous ( ? ) parties and 
found the^ lacking.) The dor- 
mitories are generally rather 
well-populated . . . even on week- 
ends. 

(3.) There are certainly many 
places frosh men are allowed to 
go (you remember . . . things 
called dances, movies, jazz con- 
certs, etc.), even though they are 
not allowed to attend fraternity 
parties. Girls ai-e not utterly ad- 



To the editor: 

In answer to Mr. Hemenway's 
letter in Wednesday's Collegian, 
may I offer a suggestion? Use 
a little ingenuity, boys. Show a 
little spirit. Don't you remember 
the old saying about "faint 
hearts" never winning "fair lad- 
ies"? 

There are plenty of girls on 
campus. It's up to you to meet 
them ... in classes, at the 
S.U., even at the libe. These are 
the places to which you have 
easy access when you make your 
daily venture into the ci\iliized 
portion of the campus from your 
hide-out on the hill. 

Once you've learned a girl's 
name (this is easy — just ask), if 
you find yourself too beat to 
leave the comfort of your hill- 
side huts tb come down again 
and issue a personal invitation, 
try the telephone. This is a handy 
little gadget which enables peo- 
ple to talk to one another at a 
distance. I hear that they have 
a few up there,

This is a Brooks response to 
Jim Galvin's "Y^u Can't Win." 
(Collegian, Oct 28). We who 
make noise for your distraction 
are only building "a sound mind 
in a sound body." Alas, golf les- 
sons are o'er, but we intend to

Campus Comment 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

(The ideas and opinions expressed in this column 
are those entirely of Mr, Kominski and do not ne- 
cessarily express the opinion of the staff of the 

COLLKGIAN.) 

CENSORED ... a word which carries with it a 
sig^nificant meaning. A word not too well liked by 
the men of mass communications, especially the 
gentlemen of the press. Yet it is a word used pri- 
marily against literature, and it may be used against 
one of the forms of literature on this campus. 

Nobody wants a campus publication censored, es- 
pecially those who work on the publication. But 
there are those with authority who, when the time 
conies, strike to censor a publication if they feel 
it is not what they care for. (Example — the Q^or- 
terly, which of course is not censorefl, was sus- 
pended from publication a few years back by the 
administration because they found certain material 
contained within it objectionable.) 

Let's face it, Ya-Hoo was a matter of contro- 
versy when it came out for Homecoming. It caused 
a multitude of sneers on authoritative faces, but 
from the people for whom it was particularly in- 
tended, the students, it brought quite a few chuckles, 
and a good deal of more favorable comment than 
the humor magazine of the campus has received for 
a long time. 

Many agreed that the last issue of Ya-Hoo was 
one of the best, as far as campus humor is con- 
cerned, that has come out in a long time. On the 
other hand, there were those who disliked what they 
read — but notice that they DID read it . . . and 
probably the whole book from cover to cover, too. 
These are the few who laughed furiously behind 
closed doors, and then went out and told everyone 
that the magazine was horrible and should be 
banned. 

When people, no matter who they are, open the 
cover of a campus humor magazine they should 
know what they are going to find. What's inside is 
the type of humor that can usually be found on most 
campuses. Oh, Mom and Dad may be shocked by 
what they read, but let's face it, on what campuses 
is the humor much different ? 

Humor magazines from other colleges are con- 
sidered works of art by some critiques. Some of 
these magazines are many times more "horrible" 
than Ya-Hoo. To respect these magazines, you must 
realize that they are, just as much as Atlantic is in 
its classification. 

Sure, you may think that what's inside the cover 
is crazy . . . especially some of the ads. But maybe 
that's what it takes to make a humor magazine 
stick ... a lot of "crazy" stuff. 

So the next time you read Ya-Hoo, try to under- 
stand the attempt by the writers to make the stu- 
dent, the one for whom the book is intended, enjoy 
what he is reading by putting it on a level, which 
may not be the best, but at least is the most ap- 
pealing to him. 

Ya-Hoo, too, must be careful. They must watch 
their material so as to avoid the ever-present danger 
of the censor. The writers of Ya-Hoo at least make 
an attempt to understand the student, why shouldn't 
the student do the same for them? 



More Letters ... 

Salute To Doctors 

To the editor: 

While we are busying ourselves praising the 
efficient staff of Dr. Ernest Radcliffe whose action 
during the current "flu" outbreak has proven itself 
more than deserving of this praise, we would do well 
to not limit these congratulatory words to include 
only those members of the university community 
and medical staff, but also we should include the 
members of the medical profession who have private 
practices in the town of Amherst, 

Many of our fellow students . . . sought relief 
from the Asian "bug" through Doctors Gage, Holden, 
Hogan and others , . . the tradition of no night too 
cold nor any hour too late was witnessed many times 
during the past few weeks , . . 

, , . each and every one of us students of this 
university could show our appreciation by being 
more conscious of and courteous to our friends in 
the town of Amher.st. Let us remember well that 
this is their town and we are only visitors for a few 
years . . . These unselfish townsfolk probably want 
us to think of Amherst as our "homo away from 
home," but al.'^o w«^ mu.st rornomber that this is 
their home, always. 

Sincj'roly,

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4. 1957 



Redmen Stop . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

the second period when they re- 
covered a Vermont fumble on 
their own 40 yard line and luKRed 
it sixty yards to paydirt in nine 
plays. On the very first play of 
the drive Blume passed to John 
O'Keefe for 20 yards, bringing' 
the ball into Vermont territory. 
Then came a crucial play, when, 
after three tries for the first 
down, Blume threw a screen pass 
to Bill Reynolds on fourth dowit 
that went for the necessary yard- 
age to the Catamount 30. Buzz 
Richaixison lugged the ball on 
the next two plays to gain anoth- 
er first down on the 19 yard 
line, and then Blume i^n the 
keep play down to the 3 yard 
Hne. Richardson went over on the 
next play, Walls added the pbint 
after, and the Redmen owned a 
seven point lead. 

The lead was a little more 
than short lived as Tom Tierney 
gathered in the kickoff on his 
own l.*) yard line and galloped 
85 yards on a goal line express 
run to put the Catamounts back 
in the ball game. He added the 
FAT and things were once again 
on an even keel. 

Two series of downs later, af- 
ter the Redmen had dropped the 
Vermonters for losses on three 
straight plays, Tom Tierney 
dropped back to punt and got a 
bad pass from center. The Red- 
men smothered him fast and took 
over the ball on the Vermont 35 
yard line. They moved the ball 
down to the 15 but a clipping 
penalty pushed them back to the 
30. Richardson nullified the pen- 
alty on the next play as he 
bulled his way to the seven. Then 
Blume ran the keep to the two 
and the Buzz charged over for 
his second TD of the afternoon. 
Once again Walls added the im- 
portant point and the Redmen 



led at halftime, 14-7. 

The third period was a stale- 
mate duel with neither team pen- 
etrating any deeper than the op- 
ponents' forty yard line. Not a 
single first down was picked up 
by either squad during the mid- 
field struggle. 

Early in the final period, the 
Redmen brought the ball down 
to the Vermont 19, but were 
shoved back not by the Cata- 
mounts, but via the penalty 
route. They were forced to kick 
and Jim Shay angled the ball 
out of bounds on the Vermont 
19 yard line. 

The Catamounts, who up to 
this point in the game had been 
held to a minus yaixlage from 
scrimmage, then proceeded to put 
on their only sustained drive of 
the day, grinding out 81 yards 
in 15 plays. Roy Greene, star 
soph halfback, was the workhorse 
on this push as he accounted for 
45 yards in nine carries. White 
scored from the UMass 14 yard 
line, as after being seemingly 
trapped well back of scrimmage 
trying to pass, he suddenly broke 
clear around the right side and 
scampered into the end zone for 
the TD. The Redmen sewed up 
the contest on the PAT try as 
White let the ball get away from 
him for the fifth time in the 
game and the UMass line smoth- 
ered the ball to hold their one 
point lead. 

The Catamounts got one more 
chance to win the game when 
they took over on downs on their 
own forty with three minutes to 
play. On the fourth play from 
scrimmage. White dropjjed back 
to pass and sent one to Greene 
on the right sideline but Rich- 
ardson came storming in from 
his backer up spot to intercept 
on the Vermont 35 with a minute 
to go, wrapping up the long 
awaited win for the Redmen.

St. Regis 
Award 



EMward "Buzz" Richardson re- 
ceives the St. Regis award this 
week for his spectacular play 
in Saturday's grid triumph. Rich- 
ardson scoi-ed both Redmen 
touchdowns while picking up one 
hundred and nine yards on the 
ground. He has also sc^ored three 
other TD's this season, giving 
him a total of five, higiiest a- 
mong UMass players. 

Richardson, who calls Mans- 
field his home, is a Sophomore 
and a member of Lambda Chi 
Alpha. By playing football this 
year he will earn his fourth let- 
ter. This letter will make him 
the first four-Ietterman in UMass 
athletic history. 

Buzzy will receive a certificate 
allowing him a $5.00 meal ticket 
at the St. Regis diner. 

The Redmen ran out the clock 
in a single play and broke into 
the win column for the first time 
since dropping the same Vermont 
team last year, a winless drought 
of six games. 



Redmen Blank Clark 4-0 



In a rain .soaked, one-sided 
contest the UMass hooters 
downed Clark four to nothing. 
The four tallies, all of which 
came in the second half, were 
scored by four different players. 

Billy Burke booted home the 
first UMass score with two min- 
utes gone in the third period. 
Burke was given a fine assist on 
the play by Robinson. Robinson 
himself tallied the next score at 
the fifteen minute mark of the 
same quarter when he fii-ed one 
into the nets from the penalty 
strij)e unassisted. 

The final stanza was scoreless 
until Billy Harris followed the 
ball right up to the goalie's hands 
and then kicked it right out of 
his hands into the goal. 



Captain Joe Marrone counted 
the final Redmen marker when 
his free kick was helped into the 
nets by a Clark player. The score 
by Marrone, his first of the sea- 
son, is unusual in that one does 
not often see a fullback score in 
soccer. 

Despite the soggy ball and 
sloppy turf, Web Cutting turned 
in some fine kicks in a success- 
ful attempt to keep the ball on 
Clark's end of the field. Chariie 
Repeta also played a fast steady 
game for Larry Briggs' team. 

The hooters will make their 
next start against Tufts Satur- 
day, the ninth of November, at 
2 p.m. on native soil. This game 
should be a close one since botii 
teams have similar records. 



Sidelights On Sport 

The Flu finally caught up with 
Bill Footrick's ci-oss country 
team as they lost the Yankee 
Conference meet at Burlington 
Saturday. Lee Chisholm and Jim 
Keelon both ran in spite of their 
illnesses. Keelon, however, was 
unable to finish while Ohisholm

Ever meet a fanatic 7 



He's got just one thing uppermost in his mind. 
If he's looking for a job he's thinking only of 
pay or only of security. Reasonable men, how- 
ever, weigh these and many other factors when 
they're evaluating career possibilities. Such 
factors as opportunity, challenging work, train- 
ing, professional associates— things fanatics 
never bother to consider. 



The Bell Telephone Companies have a book- 
let for reasonable men. It's called "Challenge 
and Opportunity." It's not the sort of thing 
that'll make a fanatic's eyes light up, but it 
ought to interest a thoughtful young man— 
whatever his college background— who is 
weighing career possibilities. Get it from your 
Placement Officer or send the coupon.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4. 1957 



UM Host To 
Food Specialists 

Foods and nutrition specialists 
from Massachusetts, Connecticut 
and Lhode Island attended the 
Tri-State Foods and Nutrition 
meeting at the U of M on Sat- 
urday, Nov. 2. It was the first 
time in nine years that the uni- 
versity has been host to the an- 
nual meeting. 

Begun with a coffee hour in 
the lounge of Skinner Hall, the 
morning session was devoted to 
discussing the various aspects of 
food technology. 

The afternoon session consisted 
of grroup discussions led by mem- 
bers of the home economics foods 
and nutrition staff of the univer- 
sity. At the close of the meeting, 
the entire group assembled to 
hear reports of the group meet- 
ings. 

Frederick J, Francis, assistant 
professor of research, UM food 
technology department, delivered 
the keynote address "General As- 
pects of Food Additives" at the 
morning session. Several mem- 
bers of the food technology de- 
partment were on hand to supply 
information in their special fields 
during the question period. 



^TEAHOUSE" HAS 
"HAMS/' NO GOAT 

In tJiree weeks, UMass will be 
treated to the Roister Doister 
preseaitation of Teahouse of tfie 
Arigust Moon. Heavy production 
and rehearsal schedules are now 
taking place. 

The story of Teahouse goes as 
follows: Captain Fisby, por- 
trayed by Jack Knight, sets him- 
self up in the small Japanese 
village of Tobiki, to represent the 
army of occupation. He has been 
instructed by Washington to in- 
troduce democracy into this Or- 
iental town, and, among other 
things, to erect a schoolhouse in 
the shape of a pentagon. Al- 
Uiouigh Capt. Fisby begins ac- 
cording to the rulebook, the prob- 
lems of Oriental culture defeat 
ihi« purpose. By natural pro- 
cesses of development, the school- 
house evolves Jnto a teahouse, 
and the native industries, which 
the army is supposed to foster, 
simmer down to a highly profi- 
able business of manufacturing 
bramdy from sweet potatoes. 

With i^hearsals going along 
according to schedule, the main 
technical problem right now is 
finding a real, live goat to play 
the part of Lady Astor!

BOTANIST TALKS 
AT FERNALD HALL 

The Fernald Entomological 
Club will sponsor a talk on 
"Biota of the High Arctic" by 
Rudolph M. Schuster, assistant 
professor of botany at the uni- 
versity, at the club's next meet- 
ing on Tuesday, at 7:30 p.m. in 
Fernalii Hall. The public is in- 
vited. 

A specialist on both hepaticae 
and multillidae, Dr. Schuster 
spent several months of research 
study in 1955 on the northern 
coast of Ellesmere Island, Cana- 
da, more than 1,000 miles north 
of the Arctic Circle. He taught at 
Duke University and the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota before joining 
the U of M faculty this year.

Times Editor Tells 
Of Paper's Rise 

Edited in New York and print- 
ed in Europe by stereotyped mats 
sent by air, the daily interna- 
tional edition of the New York 
Times is now a journalistic suc- 
cess. 

The editor of the issue, Mr. 
Herman Dinsmore, spoke Friday 
night before present and past 
members of the Press Club, and 
told of the financial losses, up 
to $150,000 a year, that the 
Times overcame to develop a self- 
supporting world newspaper. 

Despite early losses, and diffi- 
culties with customs officials and 
printing presses in foreign coun- 
tries, the "grey" Times, said Mr. 
Dinsmore, has achieved its orig- 
inal purpose — to distribute 
throughout the world all foreign 
and most national news. 

In addition, the Times prints 
important editorials, book re- 
\"iews, theatre, film, and music 
reviews, and as "many letters as 
possible" from the American edi- 
tion, he said. 

Mr. Dinsmore strongly urged 
the study of journalism in col- 
leges, and said he favored jour- 
nalism schools for persons who 
plan journalistic careers. He 



added: 

"It is best to learn the tools 
of the trade first. Being an honest 
truthful journalist is an impor- 
tant thing in the world today." 

Mr. Dinsmore was introduced 
by Arthur Musgrave, professor of 
English and Joui-nalism, and ad- 
viser to the Press Club. 

ANNOUNCEMENT 

The R.C. Blood Drive Com- 
mittee will meet on Nov. 5 
in the Student l^nion. All 
members are urged to attend. 
Room assignment will be 
listed on the Union placard. 

IR Club To Hear 
Professor Potash 

Robert A. Potash, assistant pro- 
fessor of history of the U of M 
will address the university's In- 
ternational Relations Club on 
Tuesday at 7:30 in the Student 
Union. He will discuss the 
"Changing scene in Latin Amer- 
ica." 

Mr. Potash holds his A.B. and 
M.A. degrees from Harvard where 
he was elected to Phi Beta Kap- 
pa. He returned from Latin 
America last summer where he 
served two years as a State De- 
partment Foreign Service Officer. 



Blood Drive . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
Three campus members have 
asked for blood donations to 
their family Blood Bank supply. 
Mr. Richai-d Gamble, Mr. James 
Frank, and Ernest Paluca '68 
have family members who are 
in need of blood. Anyone willing 
to give to their Blood Banks, is 
requested to report his or her 
choice when donations are taken 
this Wednesday and Thursday 
at Arnold House.

Gifted Goat To Play Lady Astor In "The Teahouse," 
As Production Rehearsals Approach Midway Point 



Geranium Ends 
Hunt For Star 



by PETE 

With the acquisitioin of Ger- 
anium, a female goat donated by 
by Doctor F. G. Ruder, the Am- 
herst Veterinarian, the Roister 
Doisters have completed their 
cast for "Teahouse of the August 
Moon", their first production this 
year. 

Geranium, w^ho will play Lady 
Astor in the play was obtained 
only after extensive search. Jan- 
ice Cockburn, chairman of props, 
and her committee made fre- 
quent phone calls, and usually 
met with the reply that the goat 
in question had been sold or 
otherwise exterminated. 

It waa feared that Lady As- 
tor's scenes would have to be 
cut, thereby detracting from the 
effect of the play as a whole. 

Between rehearsals Geranium 
■will be kept at the home of Ted 
Crowley, and will be transferred 
to and from Bowker in a special- 
ly constructed goat trailer. 

Geranium will be on display 
in front of the Student Union 
several days prior to the produc- 
tion.

Hartog 

Vibrates 

"The Engineering School of the 
University of Massachusetts is a 
very fine school," Dr. Jacob Den 
Hartog said late last night in the 
Student Union. 

"A very fine thing about this 
school is the way it is attracting 
more and more students", he con- 
tinued. 

"I am very pleased with the re- 
ception of my talk," he declared, 
"and I enjoyed myself very much 
at the University." 

He talked on two ways to pre- 
vent vibrations destructive to 
machine parts in power develop- 
ment. This talk is the basis of 
the 44th Annual Lecture of the 
Institute of Mechanical Engineers 
in London. 

He is the first non-Englishman 
to give this lecture and is re- 
garded as the leading world au- 
thority on vibrations. He now 
heads the Department of Mechan- 
ical Engineering at Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology. 

He spoke to an overflow audi- 
ence; some stood in the back of 
the room and others in the door- 
ways. 

The lecture was sponsored 
jointly by the student and parent 
divisions of the University of 
Massachusetts chapter of the Me- 
chanical Engineers.

Sputnik 

Sidelights 

by BETTY GOODNOW 

"Oh, where, oh, where has my 
little dog gone ..." 

At Warren, Rhode Island, ham 
radio operator, Newton Krause, 
thought he had the answer. New- 
ton, tuned into the 20 megacycle 
broadcasting frequency used by 
Muttnik and heard a "message" 
sent by a prankster. 

The message ? Simple — "Bow- 



wow. 



***** 



Dog lovers, unite! 

Animal lovers throughout the 
world consider the nickname 
"Muttnik" an insult to the Rus- 
sian dog in Sputnik II. 

The SPCA's in the Western 
nations of the world are uniting 
to pnotest against Russia for 
cruelty to animals. 

Animal lovers in England have 
already suggested that one 
minute of silence be held every 
day by dog lovers throughout the 
world until Muttnik safely re- 
turns to earth. 

***** 

Rut general opinion among 
scientists seems to be that Kud- 
ryavka, the female Siberian 
husky in Sputnik II, is likely to 
fee' few ill effects from her 
journey through space. 

A comparatively small and 
light dog, Kudryavka has a soft 
double coat which should be able 
to withstand the changes in tem- 
perature, she will encounter in 
her journey through space. 

According to Russian scientists, 
she has enough food and water to 
stay alive for a considerable 
amount of time. She is enclo.sed 
in a hermetically sealed doghouse 
within the rapidly moving satel- 
lite. 

Kudryavka has traveled through 
space before, in a rocket, and is 
only one of several dogs especial- 
ly trained by Russian scienti.sts 
for space travel. 

***** 

.Sputnik II has been spotted in 
the United J^lates. Europe, Asia 
and Australia. Cambridge's Moon- 
watch headquarters stated that 
Muttnik is due to pass over Bos- 
ton early this morning. 

So . . . out to the Moonwatch 
meetings, Umies; maybe this ia 
one we'll see!

Rehearsals As 
You See Them 



by NADINE NEWTON 



LATE NEWS BULLETIN 

(UP) -An FBI agent has been 
sent to investigate a report 
by a California grain dealer 
that he spotted a "space 
ship" near Kearny, Neb. and 
talked to the occupants. 

Reinhold Schmidt said the 
six persons aboard told him, 
"In time you will find out 
what we are doing." 

He said he entered the 
ship, and after 20 minutes, 
they put him out — and the 
ship — 'a cigar-shaped object 
— rose into the air. 



BELIEVE 

IT OR NOT 

by TED SHEERIN 

An unidentified source de- 
scribed as "usually reliable," has 
reported that Russia plans to 
spoil the fun for UMass lovers 
by turning the moon into a giant 
advertisement for international 
Communism. 

We have bee^ infoi-med that 
the Soviet Union launched a rock- 
et for the moon last Saturday 
just as the gun sounded to end 
the UMass- Vermont football 
game. 

Travelling about 1,500 miles 
per hour, the missile is due to 
arrive on the moon tomorrow af- 
ternoon at 1:36. 

The missile, which contains an 
atomic device, weighs 96.4 
pounds. It also contains a chem- 
ical compound which will satur- 
ate the moon's thin atmosphere 
with a red glow to commemorate 
the fortieth anniversary of the 
Communist Revolution. 

According to Butterfield moon- 
watchers, there is a 50-50 chance 
that they will miss the moon en- 
tirely, and that the rocket will 
shoot off into outer space. In any

Presently midway through re- 
hearsals, "Teahouse of the Au- 
gust Moon" is reported to be 
going along satisfactorily. Fol- 
lowng is a description of what 
one might see on wandering into 
Bowker Auditorium during p. 
typical rehearsal. 

At the rear of the stage, tech- 
nical director Robert Williams 
and his crew are busily painting 
the sweeping oriental roof which 
will soon be fitted on to the top 
of the teahouse. 

In the foreground, to the left, 
stand the "Japanese" ^^!lagers, 
wearing plaid skirts, chine pants 
and Ivy League sweaters. At the 
ripfht Captain Fisby, alias Jack 
Knight, is seated at his desk. 
Sakini, who looks very much lika 
Matt Brown when he isn't in cos- 
tume, is seated beside him.

Collegian Call 

In anticipation of the expan- 
sion of the Collegian in the very 
near future, a second 6- week 
training course for news report- 
ers has been initiated, and the 
first classes will commence in 
two weeks. All those interested, 
particularly freshmen and sopho- 
mores, are urged to sign up at 
the Collegian office immediately. 

Not a mere activity, the Col- 
legian is a sei-vice — and as the 
university grows, so mu.st its 
newspaper! 



ATTENTION! 

All students interested in 
radio woik are uiged to con- 
tact Dave Cullen at WMUA 
immediately. No experience is 
necessary.

''The Zigglethwirp Is Coming!^* 






The Purge Continues 

Beria, Malenkov, Zhukov. Who's next? 
Student, administrator, professor. Who's 
next? There seems to be evidence that Rus- 
sia is susceptible to consistent turnover and 
even reversion of government and policy. 
When one of these upheavals occurs every 
red star is in danger of losing its glitter. 
However, these reactionary crises are not 
by any means restricted to the Russian sec- 
tor of the globe. 

At present there is a purge in effect in 
the United States which is just as indis- 
criminate as is the Russian type in choosing 
its victims. Indeed it has even struck in the 
ostensibly innocent town of Amherst. The or- 
ganizer and most active member of this 
purge is that not elusive enough bug who is 
purveyor of the now well known Asiatic 
Flu. These bugaboos, to say the least, have 
caused a disruption in our body-economic 
system. At present this purge is in a state 
of recession. The beds are emptying. The 
voluntary staff is taking a breather. Is it 
over? Are things returning to normal? Can 
we forget about this mighty mite of the res- 
piratory world ? 

A few weeks ago New York thought they 
could answer these questions in an affirma- 
tive vein. At the present time their amount 
of flu-cases has risen to well over eighty- 
four cases with one hundred and ten deaths. 
Physicians throughout the country believe 
that the plague will increase with cold weath- 
er. It has also been established that this 
bug attacks in waves. The end is still to come. 
What does this mean ? Another look at the 
political conditions in Russia shows us that 
when a purge is imminent the bigwigs 
strive to end up on the stronger side. They 
make their choice and hope it is the right 
one. This does not mean that here we should 
join the bug. However, we should take steps 
to strengthen our side. W^e should not relax 
the care of our bodily health. We shouldn't 
be fooled by quick changes in temperature. 
Because it is forty degrees one day and sixty 
degrees the next does not mean it is warm 
enough for shirtsleeve dress. Make your 
choice and hope for the best. Remember, 
Beria can't return. Malenkov and Zhukov 
probably wish they could. We can, do, and 
will. N.M.

FINE ARTS COUNCIL 

by SANDRA RUSBY 

One of the most illustrative groups on campus is the 
Fine Arts Council. It came to the attention of the Collegian 
that many of the students aren't aware of the council and 
the tremendous effort it is making to improve our school 
and add to its cultural life. 

The council is advised by three faculty members, Mr. 
Albert Madeira of the English Department, Mr. Louis 
Greenbaum of the History Department, and Mr. Clarence 
Shute of the Philosophy Department. 

It has both program and advisoiy responsibilities. For 
several years it has been supervising a program of events 
which has included lectures on archeology, dance literature, 
architecture and music and dance recitals. 

Many of these lectures and performances are of the 
nature to further understanding and appreciation of the 
arts. For example, the council sponsored an artist to dis- 
cuss his paintings and their underlying principles. It was 
their hope that the students would learn something about 
the artist himself from the lecture. 

The council is a university committee whose member- 
ship is nominated by the University Committee on Com- 
mittees. It represents each of the major divisions of the 
University, especially each department of fine ai-ts. 

The main concern of the council is to foster under- 
standing of the arts and encourage programs which will 
stimulate interest in the arts. 

The council feels it is most impoilant for the students 
to realize the nature of its interest in the aits. The council 
feels great art represents a way of life. It is not just an 
amusement as are the lower forms of art, but it involves 
personality, and to benefit from it you must put your whole 
self into it.. Great art cannot be in your life like the back- 
ground music to a movie. It must be in the foreground, 
play a big role in your interests and be dominant over other 
forms of entertainment. 

Mr. Shute has expressed what he calls his own pipe 
dream. His hope is to have a Fine Arts Association as a 
Registered Student Organization, coming from the initia- 
tive of the students, to foster a total fine arts progi*am. It 
would not compare with other existing organizations, but 
its aim would be to supplement the culture on campus with 
a total fine arts council. 

However, an organization of this kind would have to 
be the result of student initiative, not just the work of the 
council. 



Mosses . . . 



by JOHN KOMINSKI 

A "rollingr stone may gather no moss" but a 
professor at the University of Massachusetts has 
been rolling all over the North American continent 
for eight years gathering plenty of moss— much of 
it hitherto unclassified. 

Dr. Rudolph M. Schuster, assistant professsor of 
botany, has journeyed from the Florida Keys to 
northernmost Ellesmere Island in search of mosses. 
In his travels, he has distinguished himself as a sci- 
entist who— almost literally— leaves no stone un- 
turned to gather data in out-of-the-way places. 

He is compiling a three-volume book, believed 
to be the first of its kind, on the mosses of Eastern 
North America and it will undoubtedly become a 
unique text in its field. He has received grants from 
the National Science Foundation and a Guggenheim 
Fellowship. In all, he will cover some 430 species, 
some of which have been previously unknown . . 

Dr. Schuster came to the United States when he 
was 10, and six years later, he began gathering and 
studying mosses. 

He received his B.S. and M.S. deg^rees at Cornell 
University and later his Ph.D. at the University of 
Minnesota. From this point, he began to teach; first 
on the staff of the University of Minnesota, followed 
by posts at Duke University, Michigan University, 
and now at the University of Massachusetts. 

While he has been teaching, Dr. Schuster has 
been gathering mosses from many regions of the 
Eastern North American continent. Between his 
years of teaching at Duke and Michigan, he trav- 
eled to Ellesmere Island in the northern-most region 
of the North American continent to classify mosses. 
He spent four months in this fearsome silence of 
the High Arctic. 

While doing research in the northern regions. 
Dr. Schuster experienced the awe of complete si- 
lence, got totally lost for a day, shared his expedi- 
tions with the wildlife of the Arctic, read more than 
50 books, and named a mountain after his wife. 
While he did all these things, he still managed to 
collect 50 kinds of mosses, previously undiscovered 
in this area . . . 

With his work on mosses of Eastern North Amer- 
ica set for publication next year, Dr. Schuster has 
applied to the National Science Foundation for a 
grant for study in Central America and the West 
Indies.

TRAFFIC PROBLEM... 

Did you ever think that an accident could occur 
when all the amorous dates start rushing down 
from lover's lane and try to beat the cars coming 
in from the main road ? As yet, we have been for- 
tunate; nothing has happened. But to quote an old 
phrase, we are "tempting fate." 

No girl wants to be involved, or much less be 
the cause of an accident of this nature, which by a 
little horse sense can be averted. One suggestion, 
expounded by Miss Helen Curtis, Dean of Women, 
who is very concerned with this whole problem, 
is for all the girls from Crabtree and Knowlton to 
have their dates park in the Commons Parking Lot. 
This would leave the quadrangle lot open to Arnold 
and Leach. Hamlin is extra fortunate in having 
the road beside the dorm for a place on which to 
park. Assuredly this will not completely correct 
this traffic situation, about which many people have 
complained; but it can serve as a partial remedy. 

This problem would fuit'u.r be ameliorated if 
some of the girh would tr>' to arrive in the dorms 
at 12:45. Fifteen minutes may seem like quite a 
sacrifice to some, but a broken limb, the result of 
a traffic accident, would be worse. 

The parking lot area around the girls' dorms 
has never been sufficient, to say the least. Then too, 
the granting of 1:00 Saturday night privileges to 
the Pre.shmen women furth.r added to the prob- 
lem. In the future, ther.' will be more accommo- 
dations for all these cars, but in the meantime, we 
will just have to make do with tht; best which we 
have.

Bits And Bites— Begged And Borrowed SIDELIGHTS ON SPORTS Intramurals 



I 



by DICK 

Maybe UMass should play all 
of its games against Vermont. 
After a string of six consecutive 
losses extending back into last 
season, the "Redmen" defeated 
the boys from the Green Moun- 
tains. The last UMass win was 
also against the "Catamounts". 
The series between the two 
schools shows that the "Redmen" 
have won 12, lost fi and tied two. 

Massachusetts and Vermont 
will not play each other next 

year Saturday, UMass 

intercepted five passes. The "Red- 
men" intercepted only five passes 
all of last season. Maybe our vul- 
nerable pass defense is beginning 
to tighten up. It better be just 
as gf>od next week, because Bran- 
deis is mainly a passing team. 
"Foxy" Flumere, backfield coach 
and head scout at Brandeis, in- 
formed this reporter that the 
"Judges" will fill the air with 
passes this coming Saturday. The 
series with Brandeis started in 
1952. The two teams have split 
four games since then. Last year, 
Brandeis played its best game of 
the year in defeatng the "Red- 
men" 40-14. The "Judges" ^^^ll 
bring a three and one recoi-d into 
the game. 

"Buzz" Richardson has scored 
four TD's in the last two games 
and five for the season. He gained 
109 yards on 19 cai-ries against 



BRESCIANI 

Vermont. It was the best offen- 
sive performance by a "Redman" 
back in quite a while. 

Reynold's speed really sharpens 
the UMass attack. Blume played 
his third fine game in a row, 
while Walls' two extra points 
gave the "Redmen" their first 
victory. All in all, Saturday was 
quite a day. Although the rain 
cut the crowd to a minimum, it 
failed to dampen the spirits of 
the team. It's a rare day in 
November when UMass consis- 
tently intercepts passes, kicks ex- 
tra points, and doesn't fumble the 
ball away. Saturday must have 
been that rare day, because the 
"Redmen" perfoi-med those feats 
and emerged victorious .... 
* « • * « 

Don Akerson and Paul KoUios 
have been chosen co-captains of 
the UMass basketball squad. It's 
the third straight season in which 
the team's leaders have come 
from the Worcester area. Whether 
the team improves on last year's 
13-11 record or not, will depend 
largely on the rebounding of 
"Red" Porter and John Lynch, 
the two big men on the squad. 
Porter is six-seven and Lynch is 
six-five. 



YankeeConference 
News 

New Hampshire, still after its 
first win, will be at Springfield in 
what looks like another rough 
afternoon for the Wilcats. 

The Redmen will have rugged 
Brandeis to cope with this Satur- 
day at Waltham. They wind up 
their season the following week 
against what could be a hopping 
mad New Hampshire team. This 
game Avill be played at Durham 
and could mean a tie with Maine 
for third place in the Yankee 
Conference for the improving 
UMass team.

The Yankee Conference foot- 
ball race roars down the Novem- 
ber stretch with those traditional 
Southern New England rivals, 
Rhode Island and Connecticut, 
tied for first place and their big 
gaime coming up on the sixteenth 
of the month. Bob Ingall's Con- 
necticut team moved into that 
first place last Saturday as they 
belted hapless New Hampshire 
18-0 on a rain swept field at 
Storrs. It was fourth in a row for 
the Huskies who are favored to 
get by Northeastern this weekend 
and take a five and three record 
into the Rhode Island encounter. 

Rhody, for the second week in 
a row, lost to non-conference op- 
position as it succumbed to the 
great Les Plumb and his Spring- 
field supporting cast 1 1-0. The 
previous week they lost to Hnnvn 
21-0 to end an impressive five 
game winning streak. As the 
Rams are idle this week, scouting 
Connecticut, they will take a 5-2 
rfccnl into the game.

There will be a meeting of 
all candidates for the varsity 
hockey team in room II of

by HAL 

As the football season rolls into 
the final sti-etch run, only thirty- 
one teams remain unbeaten and 
untied, and only five of these are 
major colleges. 

In New England, one team, 
Dartmouth, was drop|>ed from 
the un-un list when it was tied 
by Yale in a real thriller. In that 
game, two touchdowns were 
scored in the final two minutes of 
play, one by each team. 

This tie left our cross-town 
neighl>ors, the Amherst College 
"Jeffs", as the only unbeaten and 
untied team in New England. 

On November ninth, the Jeffs 
take on Tiinity in an encounter 
which should result in another 
Amherst victory. They complete 
their season the following week 
against currently unbeaten and 
once tied Williams. 

Williams will be favored 
against Wesleyan this Saturday. 
If fomi holds true in this gaTn*» 
the Amherst-Williams encounter 
will definitely be a something to 
see. 

Another top clash next Satur- 
day wll be the B.C. — B.U. game 
in Boston. The Eagles sport five 
wins in succession after an open- 



GLASS 

ing drubbing by powerful Navy. 

The Terriers have been im;)roving 
with each game. Right now they 
hold a four win and two loss 
record. 

Some good news for our B.U. 
followers is the possible return of 
spectacular Jimmy Dean to the 
back field. Dean will be remem- 
bered by UMass fans for his fine 
play against the Redmen. 



Undefeated Sig Ep won its 
eleventh game by toppling S.A.E. 
31-7. The S.A.E.'s played with- 
out the sei-vices of their star 
quai-terback, George McCaffeity. 
The score, however, does not tell 
the true story of the game. The 
first half was played equally well 
by each team with Sig Ep lead- 
ing at half-time by the close 
score of 13-7. Sig Ep now needs 
only two wins to finish the sea- 
son unbeaten. 



BETTS— Man Behind The Scenes; 
Student Manager Invaluable To Team 



The real unsung hero of the 
UMass football team, the only 
boy who will never see his name 
in headlines, is the student mana- 
ger, Bob Betts. 

Many football fans conceive of 
the manager as the boy who 
brings the water bucket on the 
field or tosses out the kicking tee. 
Actually, a good manager like 
Betts must be a combination of 
pack horse, book keeper, statisti- 
cian and diplomat. 

Bob Betts is invaluable to his 
team. Without him and his as- 
sistant. Bob O'Neil, the football 
squad would find life extremely 
complicated by numerous details. 



Bob handles the statistics of the 
team, keeping a running account 
during each varsity game. He 
handles hotel and restaurant ac- 
commodations when the team is 
on the road. He pays the officials 
after every home game. 

Bob Betts of Leominster is a 
remarkable young man. A pre- 
med student with a high scholas- 
tic average. Bob manages to be 
on the practice field every after- 
noon and also has a complete 
knowledge of the team's offense 
and defense. If any player is in 
doubt as to an assignment, that 
player will frequently check with

Departmeni 

The Campus Fire Department 
was on special duty last Thurs- 
day from 7 to 12 p.m. During 
that time three calls were ans- 
wered. There was a grass fire 
and a tire fire in Pelham, and 
the remains of the Kappa Kappa 
Ganuna float in Amherst. 

During the Horticulture Show, 
the following day, someone was 
on duty at all times to watch out 
for smokers and anything else 
that might be a fire hazard. 

At the last meeting of the De- 
partment, the members voted to 
increase the membership of the 
Department from eight men and 
two officers to ten men and two 
officers.

LISLE MISS 

ARRIVES 

Miss Sirkka Talikka of the 
Lisle Fellowship, an International 
Institute for Human Relations 
will be visiting campus today and 
tomorrow to speak to students 
and faculty members about her 
organization's work. 

Each year, the Lisle foundation 
sponsors summer projects both in 
the United States and abroad. 
These projects consist of com- 
munity project work in hospitals 
and other such institutions. They 
are designed to foster understand- 
ing of common problems in the 
field of International Relations. 

Miss Talikka is a graduate of 
the University of Helsinki in Fin- 
land. She will be visiting classes 
through Thursday and will speak 
to students throughout the cam- 
pus. On Thursday afternoon she 
will have a booth set up in the 
lobby of the SU. 

She is having supper this eve- 
ning at KKG. While on campus 
she will be the guest of Miss 
Carol Sundstrom in Knowlton 
House. 

Miss Talikka's visit is being 
sponsored by the Provost's ofllice 
in cooperation with the Dean of 
Women and the International Re- 
lations Club. Mr. Stanley Salwak 
of the Provost's office is in charge 
of the arrangements. Dick Des- 
Jardins and Ted Sheerin of the 
IRC will act as Miss Talikka's 
escorts while she is here.
